    new build?

    want to move from the convert to a native SS. So I've been looking at a Zion EBB frame(i've heard about the tire clearance issues). I like the White Ind and Truvativ SS cranks. I'm a bit lost on wheelsets and hubs, but know i would like a flip flop. I've never built a bike up from the frame up. So post here any tips, recommendations, suggestions, etc..thanks!

    Surly makes cool and cheap flip rear hubs. 3 different kinds - one that takes two freewheels for flipping, one that takes a freewheel and a fixed cog, and one that takes two fixies. All in 135mm. check webcyclery... they sell em for $70.
