Yeah, I don't get that either. I would have thought it would not work at all.
Of course I care about a Campagnolo hub. As long as you replace the stressed components (axle and bearings), shouldn't the shell itself last forever?
I agree. If it is Campy, then it is automatically a worthy hub. As long as it was not overly abused in its past life, it is a good piece of equipment. Maybe the freewheel was not really French, notwithstanding the stamping on it? Do the threads look messed up?
Last forever? Practically, yes. Bearing races can be wrecked through improper adjustment pretty quickly. But usually it is the cones that seem to take the brunt of the wear, which is good since they can be replaced. Some hubs have pressed in races that could be pressed out and replaced. Never done this and do not know how feasible it is though.
