Very true Venice! Now, if you were to spend another 30 bux, you could get a complete wheel from Husky bikes.
26" FRONT WHEEL WITH DRUM BRAKE HUB: Husky Bicycles
I just put one on my bike and I really like it. I bought the 12 gauge front wheel and the 11 gauge rear wheel, came to around 124 dollars shipped to my door. My bike originally had 14 gauge spokes all around so I feel a lot more comfortable with the larger spokes. Granted, if you are going to paint your wheels or do special work to them and, you can do that work, the $50 S/A hub is a great buy. Either way, depending on your needs/abilities.
