Would the BB & hubs be good for...PdxMark

a wet weather commuter? I seem to recall that one, or the other, had poor seals for wet conditions. The front hub won't work for my fixie-to-be, since I'll need a disc-compatible hub.
yeah, you should have bought that 4 years ago.desmo

That has to be a cached page from '99? If not buy it now. It would cost that much for just hubs and a crankset these days (if you can find hi-flanges). Although the current sealed BB would be better for a road going bike.
page seems currentpswann

At the top it says "2003 Record Group" so it seems certain it's current.

Yes, the "LickNotes" thingy has a '99 date on it but it is just standard boilerplate language for the value of buying a group from them. They just haven't changed it in a few years.

The 2003 group uses low flange hubs
Wouldn't use high flange on the roadFrank Tuesday

Other high flange hubs should be fine, but the campys are built to be light for the track.
