Personally, I'd want the hubs for a kibbitz item,holes don't matter. I also didn't take the comment as a bad 'un, actually, unless I did my usual glossing over. The mis drill wouldn't even bother me on something this ususual. Most things in life don't 'match' one hand has the thumbon one side, the other the other Hubs- one wide, other narrow

I know i'll get flack on this but the point is, after soooo many wall of shame, flame, as well as fame custobummers and whiners along with winners, too many agonizers out there in the short life.

I get many that will not take something if there's as little as an under-bb fleck or a smear outa the way.

sheesh, why can't we just goout and ride as much as Chuck gets to! I promise once i get a real job I'll start looking inward instead of just aiding the troops.

Where were we? Oh, hubs. It's a good thing we know about the differential drilling now rather than later can you imagine if an AR bought them w/out knowing? I seldom if ever ride same-drill wheels, same-rim wheels, and heavens, same-tubbed wheels.

Iknow my nick name is the 'Bicycle [Matchmaker' but it means matching the riuder to the wheels
