    looking for something very surly specific to purchase.

    guys, i know this isnt a place to put a wtb ad, but this is the only place i feel like people would know what im talking about

    upon recently (finally) acquiring my 2001 sub11 1x1, as well as a torsion bar, i was reminded of the 1x1 hubs they used to make, i figure i might as well build it up as period correct as possible, so im trying here to see if anyone has a set that isnt being used. willing to buy either the hubs or hubs and rims if they're laced to something nicer

    Thanks!

    The older version of their disc/rear SS hub is on closeout at universalcycles here: Universal Cycles -- Surly New Disc Rear Hub

    Unless you're looking for those really old ones that said, "1x1" on them and came on the Original Rat Ride 1x1. If so, good luck with that.

    i am looking for the really old ones that say 1x1 on them, i know its a long shot but they were kind of a pain in the ass to keep adjusted, so my hope is that someone has a few that are never used. the real set of wheels for this bike are going to be 650b with the surly ultra new hub, so these will just be laced to a sturdy 26" rim as an extra set...i've already found a 1x1 torsion bar, so i figure whats the hurt in asking if anyone has the hubs!

    There is a '1x1' flip flop rear hub on eBay right now, just over 5.5 days left on the auction.
