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)

Philwood custom spoke count => low flange.

True, my bad. I think your only options for that low of a count rear track hubs are custom drilled Phils, which are boat anchors, Novatecs, which are cheap(although I hear great things about the quality, but still not something I'd lace to a $500 carbon hoop), and Mack hubs.

I'd go with a Mack.

FWIW, I've been very happy with my Novatecs, and wouldn't hesitate to lace them to anything.

FYI, you'll wait a looooong time till you'll get a Mack hub. Just got an email from him that if I order now he'll start manufacturing in August.
