Which do you think is a better value? How much do you think I would spend if I built a complete bike with the wheelset? I bike every day but I'm not a super serious rider, and I'm thinking $700 might be a bit out of my price range. But if it's a really solid bike that won't need a lot of maintainance then I think it might be worth it.
How much do the new aluminum hubs weigh? I have an old steel SA 3-speed (coaster) hub lying around that I was going to build up for my commuter but the thing weighs like 5 pounds. It's such a beast I decided to go SS/FG instead.
I bet 3-speed fixed would be pretty cool either way.
