    It seems like there's really no point in buying mid range hubs like All Citys as they are just re-branded Novatechs or Formulas. You might as well either get one of those or step up to Phils or DAs or Pauls or similar. Big price difference and in the case of Phils, big weight difference. Only other option that makes sense to me is finding some NOS Suzue Pro Max.

    All-City New Sheriff hubs (which are awesome) aren't rebranded Novatecs, just their standard track hubs are.

    Gran Compe, Miche and Suzue hubs are often overlooked in terms of quality vs price as well.

I was thinking that if I use a hacksaw, I could first screw on some old headset parts to act as a guide to get a square cut, and to help reform the threads when they were removed after cutting.
    Sorry I missed this!

    I've always just use a hacksaw and a one of these but I'm sure you could do the same with a headset part to keep the saw blade straight.

    Hey, I haven't been following along lately - what is the progress of the Raleigh build and when do we get more bike porn featuring it?

    I don't have one of these pouches but that looks like a great way to use 'em.

    You aren't approaching this right. It's a Canadian change purse, for all the loonies and twonies. I must have a quarter pound of change in my pants most times.

    Hey Scrod. Where is the new shop in SD? I'll be down there next week and I'll see if I can stop by.

    Scrod,

    So I'm a student at SDSU and I have to do a project for my retail marketing class. I have to choose a product category and compare how it is sold in 3 different retail formats. I chose bikes and bike supplies for my product category and the different retail formats I'll be looking into are a specialty bike store (Retrogression), a sports store (Sports Authority), and either a department store like (Sears) or a discount store like (Target).

    I have to interview a manager or owner in each of these stores and ask questions about products, sales, promotions, deliveries, etc that have to do with their bike department. My question to you: May I use your store for my project? And if so may I either interview you sometime in your store or just send you a list of the questions to answer, whichever you prefer?

    It'd be a big help but I understand if you say no. Thanks for your time Scrod, and I look forward to a reply.

    Michael

    Of course! Do me a favor and send me a list of questions so I can get a feel for what you'll be asking, then stop by sometime and I'll talk your ears off.

    awesome, how should i send you the questions? I can't pm on here. Should I send it through your website?

    Also, some of the questions seem stupid or hard to answer. If you don't know answers, guesses are fine and i can leave some blank as well.

    Awesome, thanks so much! I'll try to come in early tomorrow. And if you are serious about doughnuts then you have to let me know what kind. ha.

    And I'll send over the questions now. And if you have any questions I can clarify them tomorrow.

    You only show the H+Son Archetypes going up to 32 hole but their website has them in 36h. Considering I'll need a front hub and spokes (got the rear, that S3X), can you get the 36h rims or am I better off buying from the factory and getting the hubs/spokes from you?

    Thought so. Of course, it's only the rear rim that needs to be 36. Maybe I'll just buy a front wheel from you and a rim from them. I'll give a yell if I ever work out how to pay for whatever it is I decide to do.
