    New question here. Fixed hubs

    Hey all you fixie fans ...

    I just picked up a cheap vintage norco road frame with semi-horizontal dropouts that I'm goning to build up fixed.

    I was going to get a Surly hub, but distribution in Canada is very slow right now, and I might have to wait over a month. Are there any other economical brands out there I should consider? Economy is key here. I'm going to build it cheap and upgrade as I go along (CHUB in the long run? Mmmm...)

    As an off topic note, to any posters in Kingston, Ontario or Victoria, BC (both in Canada) - what's the job and housing market like? Cost of living? I'm trying to pick a grad school for next fall and both have made promising offers.

    The price certainly is right - ridiculously so. Are they any good? The price seems too good to be true... The prices seem too good on most of their stuff. Any experiences?

    I've been running on a set of the hubs for a few months now very smooth.

    I like Miche hubs. They are comparable to Campy hubs and much cheaper.
    Convince me

    ........

    try harris cyclery, they'll ship to you. I emailed them about the discounted surly hub they had on the surly blog and he bought them all I guess. I think he said he's selling them for $59/ea for a 135mm fixed/free 36 hole.
