thanks guys, i will check harris cyclery out for the Normandy Lux hub. So it looks as i will have to stay w/ french threading. i want to stay clincher, since i dont think i can fiddle with a sewup as of yet. i'm still learning basic maintenance. i plan as using this bike on a few centuries and as a daily ridder. i usually ride 35 miles 2-3 times per week.

so one rim i can build is Nuovo Record - high flange(french) with 36 holes, DT spokes, Mavic rims (is there a mavic rim thats is more desirable than another??)


Maillard Professional or 700 series hubs - high flange 36 holes,

spacing should be 126mm (but if i find 120mm thats ok)

how about my cassete. it is a five speed do i have to get another 5 speed or can i use 6 or 7??
i have simplex (retrofriction levers)
