    Mystery Hubs

    I have these hubs, came as a spare wheelset for a bike, laced to Mt Matrix narrow 26" (559mm) rims. I do not recognize the logo. Can anyone tell me about these hubs - maker, era, quality, where made, etc? Thanks.

    Similar to old Bullseye's...

    Didn't Bullseye have grubscrewed end caps, rather than a threaded locknutted system?

    There were several companies making hubs very similar to this back in the early '90s. your best bet may be to find a stack of old bike magazine and start skimming the adds.
    Bianchis '87 Sport SX, '90 Proto (2), '91 Boarala 'cross, '93 Project 3, '88 Trofeo, '86 Volpe, '89 Axis, '79 Mixte SOLD, '99 Mega Pro XL Ti, '97 Ti Megatube, , '90 something Vento 603,

    Others but still loved,; '80 RIGI, '80 Batavus Professional, '87 Cornelo, '86 Bertoni (sold), '09 Motobecane SS, '98 Hetchins M.O., '09 K2 Mainframe, '89 Trek 2000, '?? Jane Doe (still on the drawing board), '90ish Haro Escape

    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    Thanks. Early '90s, probably American, then.

    That means they are not right for this particular project I am starting to collect parts for ('86 Peugeot PY10FC).

    Well, I'll find a use for them sometime. They seem very light and smooth.

    Thanks!

    Very nicely finished hubs look high end not sure of ride quality smoothness but I would guess very good. I saw a lot of Sampson hubs on top of the line BMX's bike in the 80's early 90's.
