What road bike do you have?

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

What road bike do you have?

The cheapest way is to find a rear hub and lace it into the wheel yourself.

Spend more to get more help and/or nicer parts.

Exactly. And I never claimed they didn't make Hudz for SRAM.

I'm really liking this one. I think it would look better with more traditional spoked wheels, other than that it's simply awesome.
