flythebike - My Rex-X is a clincher and I don't skid, hence my question about freehubs/freewheels, which everyone seems to have passed over in favor of tempting me with talk of Pink Phils. Can't say I didn't ask for it though. That having been said, I think the Rev-X looks jawesome but it's really flexy, it's got a casette hub, and I don't know how to service it myself.
absntr- You are evil.
Anyhow, here's my plan: I've got a Campy Record High-Flant front. I was going to grab some Grade 25 / Dura-Ace bearings and some Phil Wood grease and repack that thing or take it into Marcus and have him do the same. Then, I was going to have Marcus attempt to do the same for the Rev-X (not sure if he knows how to do this but I think it's a safe assumption to make). I was also going to replace the freehub body with a new Ultegra or Dura-Ace one, but I wasn't sure if it might be a better idea to get the Surly Fixxer and throw on a decent freewheel. The idea being that all of this work would come out to well under the 170+ cost of a single Phil hub. Thus, I was wondering about the relative merits of freehub w/spacers vs. freewheel.
Plus, is that pink rear spaced for a road frame?
