Goldtec hubs

Anybody know where i can find a set of goldtec hubs? the only place i could find was here
https://www.betd.co.uk/items.asp?Cate...tec+Track+Hubs
however here it says there cheaper than phils...
https://homepage.mac.com/mikesimagina...trackhubs.html
I'm confused. Has the dollar devalued that much?

He's writing out of England, where exported Phils could be much more than they would be here.

The website you listed is out of England. Mike Hayes' website pretty much says he's from England. Everything being described is in British prices, not American. Phils, exported to England, would probably be more even more expensive over there than they are here. Thus, Goldtec is cheaper than Phils (in England, where all of this is taking place).

Why don't you order them from the UK site? The rear is $140, and shipping won't be that much.

my LBS has taken a liking to me cause I am dating the daughter of their "best" customer/website designer. I get a nice discount. But I was looking at a single sided fixed. It occurs to me now that i was comparing apples to slighly different apples, single sided fixed vs double sided. my bad.
