    hub dilemma

    i'm gonna be building a new bike in the next few weeks to replace my around-town conversion, and i'm torn about which hubs to use.

    i got my hands on a set of 36h campy hi-flange c-records recently, so i've got those ready to go, BUT, i already have a pair of wheels with those hubs on the fuji.

    so here's the dilemma; do i sell the campys and go with 32h phils? (i'm leaning towards phils since the bike is gonna get ridden mostly on the street, and i like the whole idea of sealed, but... they're CAMPYS!).

    so let's have your thoughts on why i should go one way or t'other.

    If you can swing it, keep the campys and get the phils anyway. Build up the phil wheels beefy for street, and maybe get some nice sew ups and light spokes for the campys and use them for racing. Or just stash them for a future bike. I'd keep them either way though, since they don't make them anymore.
