    Am I an early Phil Wood hub?

    Going through a bunch of old parts and wheels today, I found this one. Currently laced up to an old (bent) Weinmann 27" clincher with DT swiss spokes. Looks similar (but not identical) to early Phil Wood hubs I've seen that may have had no logo or a silk screen logo that may have gotten removed at some point. Pressed-in sealed bearings, little tiny allen screws to hold the axle spacers, looks like a pretty nice hub. If it's not a Phil, can anybody identify it?

    I believe it might be a Bullseye hub

    It's not a Phil hub. Perhaps it's a Hi-E.

    Dang, you guys are good, I will spare you any puns about hitting the bullseye.

    I'd seen the HI-E's on velobase and thought they also looked similar. There aren't any bullseye hubs on velobase, but looking at other bullseye hubs (and seeing they also had set screws) elsewhere via google, it looks like we have a winner.

    I concur with "Bullseye." These were marketed mainly to the BMX market, but MTB bikes also used them. Trek had at least one MTB model in the mid-80s that used them as OEM hubs. I still have some of the sticker sets they came with:

    I make repops of Bullseye cranks. I was one of the original Bullseye welders and the cranks are all NOS parts. Are they still repops?

    I agree it's a Bullseye - I have set just like that. Note the oversize axle with flats to fit the dropout, too. You could probably get away with 8-speed freewheels with these if you had along enough axle (I was able to get a 126mm axle for mine back when they were still in business).

    BTW the bearings are standard 6001 cartridges and can be replaced without tools.

    Frank you amaze me with everything you've done in the cycling industry. Is there anywhere you haven't work or anything you haven't done?
