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)

Don't like cheap hubs? Don't want to pay shipping?

You want some nice hubs and Ebay shipping(My Ebayshipping to be specific) is to high. OK. How about a pair of Campy Record low flange hubs, Dt comps (14/15 silver) brass nipples and Velocity DeepV(Or just about any other rim you want) NO SHIPPING CHARGES $710 Same wheel but with Paul track hubs NO SHIPPING $430 Same wheel with Surly hubs $350 Oops no Surly, their rear hubs are out of stock, again.

what are the chances that any of the ss/fg frequenters would see it there? slim to none, I would guess.

I'm totally confused. Are you really selling wheels?

I'm I drunk? Yes.
Are you drunk? I'm guessing so.

im not sure if this goes for the hubs, but the reason the cogs have been out of stock is because the plant manager in taiwan got very sick and couldnt work. so a couple batches of cogs didnt get shipped out due to low quality because no one was around to make sure a good job was being done.

it not like surly cogs were ever that great to begin with...

too bad the surly cogs arent as nice as the original sub11.0 cogs

Exactly, we used to do that trick with a torch, a quarter, and a new guy.
