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)

18 hole 26" wheel?

I picked up a NOS DeoreXT front hub, 18 holes for $10 from a local shop...sweet deal right?

But now I may be panicing...I can't find any 18 hole 26" rims online...not even ebay.

Any ideas anyone?

18 hole XT hub? That sounds mighty wacky.

No worries. It's up to you to lace it six-cross, though.
