Default Re: Recomendations

If yer swappin' out hubs anyway I'd recommend drum brakes. Disks are great, but if yer runnin' the standard drive chain arrangement (no shiftkit) then I'd worry about the rear disk gettin' fouled with chain lube. I just picked up a set of front and rear Sturmey Archer drum brakes... but with a three speed rear and a dyno front (obv cost more lol), I'm pretty sure their drum hubs w/o such "accessories" are like 50 bucks or less... sounds kinda pricey till ya remember it's yer hub AND brakes lol

Not that it matters - but they look awesome too
