White Industries

So, have any of you gearheads have any experience with White Industries? I'm mostly interested in their titanium spindled bottom bracket and road hubs?

They seem like quality products from my limited experience with the ENO rear hub.

if you can afford them, get them.

i've got the eno eccentric on the back and a road on the front of one bike, and the titanium BB on another bike. all work well, as well they should for the asking price!

all told, about 1000 miles. SFSG.

i particularly like the minimalist engineering on the BB. a nice replacement for the boat anchor anachronism that it replaced.

I'm (and many others around here [ Psimet builds with them]) have had extremely great experiences with the WI H2/H3 road hubs. I've only had them for about a year, but they are on my main wheelset and have gotten LOTS of use with no trouble. I love the Ti cassette body, the polished Al finish and even the sound. They spin VERY nicely. They'll be high on my list for my wife's (eventual) wheel build. Purchase with confidence. They are a small company in California, and reachable in the unlikely chance that you do have any trouble.

Their hubs are highly regarded by many tandem riders, which means they must know how to build a tough hub.

Ti BB if you sit and spin up hills, maybe not so wise if you stand on the pedals hard, to climb
and you are not a lightweight person.
