hello all putting together a wheel set for my Manton and Smith, and I'm thinking about running New Departure hubs front & rear along with some drop-center rims. Never having had or used a ND hub, I have a couple of questions: a) the ND front hub looks like its almost identical to the same period (i.e. non-model 200) Schwinn front hub; are they related? b) I see that Memory Lane sells brand new ND hubs; are these original, or did they make a run of these for the Western Flyer repros that came out some tme back? I guess I could always ask them, now that I think about it..... c) how does a ND single-speed coatser rear hub compare to the same spec Bendix (I think the model is RB2)? I've run a few of the Bendix hubs, and I find them bullet-proof, with good braking; kind of important when you have no front brake I find. And if anyone knows what a late 40's / early 50's M&S would have come with hub-wise I'd love to hear! any info appreciated greg v.
