New hub for Rog

I get tired of that welded hub what I have in my Rog.
That bike should get something more quality. So now it does,
I just bought this old 36holes 50's Phillips NOS Fix-Fix flip flop
hub and 2 cogs in sizes 18 and 19 tooth. Hub and (ofcourse) threads
are steel what makes that hub really strong. I dont know yet will I keep
both cogs attached on hub. I think I will also get a rid of that
snowflake spoking in bolth wheels. I can make some barhipster bike around
of that old hub of rogs.

That is one sweet-looking hub! Which size do you have on the chainring? And unless there are some sort of weakness in the snowflakes I think you should keep them. I think they fit greatly with your rog.

Hey, I have 46-18 gearing on it at the moment. I'm also looking if I
found better crack for it. I will think about the spoking.

Where do you get this stuff. That hubs looks like new. Is that valve for oil??

Its new, or actually old but never used. (NOS= New Old Stock) I found it from one bicycle work shop near me. Yes there is valve where you can put some grease in. I actually have 2 of these, another one is in BigFoot.
