Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Dura Ace 10 Pitch Hubs...Any good? vs Dura Ace High Flange?

I have the opportunity to buy a set of wheels built up with dura ace 10 pitch track hubs. How do these perform? are they looseball? Would I only be buying them for street cred and not get performance close to the newer dura ace 7600 high flange? Thanks guys!

Do you have a 10mm pitch chain, cog and cranks? If not, they're just decoration.

Its true, 1o pitch only works with other 10pitch stuff.

I have some high flanges I would trade for them though

Hey guys,
so the owner said that he has an EAI Cog on the 10 pitch hubs....so im led to believe they aren't 10 pitch hubs...Dura Ace did have vintage track hubs with cutouts rihgt? similar to ones shown in this thread....

Vintage Dura-Ace track hubs. What should I lace them to?

are these any good?
