    105 hubs

    Hi folks I have a question on some old shimano hubs. The hubs I have are from a set of wheels I took off my old (circa 1986) c'dale. They have been well cared for and I thought I would try my hand at building up a new set of wheels with them. I do not know what model 105s they are. The freewheel is a 7 speed. Any help would really be appreciated. Thanx

    In the 1986-87 timeframe, they were simply known as "105". If you're wanting to know what spoke length you need, plug any small-flange Shimano hub's dimensions into your calculator. They're all close enough that small differences won't matter.
