|i lost faith in the mtbr guys...
best rear hub for an SS?
rear hub with the best $$-to-performance ratio?
and i'm also not too knowledgeable with rims, is there any one rim that's an overall standard? (kinda like the Open Pro of mtb's...maybe a little cheaper)
i talked to Adam (i think) at Hill Country Bicycle Works and he said i'd be looking at $150 for built wheel, Singulator, and labor. that seemed really really cheap. have any of y'all done this; if so, how much did it set y'all back?

|... Sorry, but a true SSer KNOWS that the motor is what matters. True hard-core practitioners ride rat-bikes built from scrap.
Except for those like me, who feel that if you don't have a proper coasterbrake, preferably an old Bendix, definitely not a Shimano, you're a poseur. And nothing beats a nice, chromed, double-walled, steel Schwinn rim.
Unless, of course, you're gonna do something silly like RACE the thing!

|Browns site he will have sugestions on how to use your existing wheel and freehub by using spacers and a lockring. This may not be the way you want to go but it is probably the least expensive.
No offense to Hummah. you just have to know that he is a big fan of simplicity. his bike weighs upwards of 40 pounds. He is a purist, with no need for equiptment, he just rides. I envy him.
