Looking for a good but affordable flip flop hub for a fixie/ss project. What do you guys recommend?

Wish I got these for my SS/Fix cyclocross.

SUZUE PRO MAX-CF

But ended up with the standard suzue pro max flip flops, perfect nonetheless.

I did build my girlfriends Fix carbon Aegis MTB with phil woods, quite expensive. Pretty hubs.

The Suzue Basic, with loose bearings are just fine for $70/pair. If you want something a little nicer, the Suzue Promax-SB are tough to beat. They supposedly last forever and, to me, are the nicest in that price range.

I've also used Miche, though not flip/flop, and am not too pleased. It's a long story, but the cog compatiblity and chainline issues just aren't worth the trouble.

Good luck,
Ginz
