Hello, new to this forum.
I commute to work 30 miles a day 100 days a year up here in Ottawa, Ontario Canada. I use a 1986 Colnago Road bike, or a 2000 Trek 7500 Hybrid (slow!).
Am now building my dream commuter-purpose bike, a Steelwool custom steel frame with Alfine rear hub, Schmidt front dynohub with front/rear lights, Honjo fenders, nitto racks, etc.
My question is this, my local bike store (http://www.talltreecycles.ca/ ) cannot get a silver Alfine rear hub, only black (Shimano Canada restriction or something). I want that 'retro-raleigh' look so I want all components silver, including front Schmidt dynohub.
For you guys south of the border, can you get silver Alfine hubs? Just interested, thats all, but might be willing to trade an Alfine rear black hub for silver if brand new...
