    cross-posted: what kind of hub is this?



    Laced to a 26" Sun CR-18 (not that that helps).
    This came on a used 1993 B-stone that I bought--
    now the hub feels kinda gritty. I'm thinking
    of keeping the rim (box rim, eyeleted, decent)
    and lacing it to a new hub.

    So what kind of hub is this--or rather, how good is it?
    Is it worth repairing-i.e. throwing new bearings
    in it? What's a good replacement hub
    for mostly city and road riding, but with off road potential?

    edit: I know it says "Power Tools" I googled power tools hub, etc.

    The skewers are going to the bike kitchen for whomever needs them along with the hub.
    Thanks for confirming what I suspected.
