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)

cheap hubs?

Hi fellow fixers, I'm looking for a cheap hub to put on the rear wheel of my latest fixed gear build. When I say cheap I mean like less than 50 bucks. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!!!!

i just built up some IROs to mavic cxp-22 and i love them. they're like formulas but come in colors, have no holes in the flange, and are cheaper.


i wanted purple nipples SO bad but couldn't find any so went silver.

That purple IRO is sweet! I am not into really colorfull bikes but I could see myself having those purple hubs laced to some silver rims.

They have gun metal grey, which is the most normal color available right now. I really want to buy some wheel goods, but idk what I'd do with them.

IRO - thanks! That is exactly what I was looking for. 20 bucks is tough to beat.
