i'm looking at 2 campy front hi flange hubs and they look identical, except one has 32 holes and has the word 'record' stamped underneath the work 'campagnolo', and the other has 36 holes but does not have the word 'record' stampe, however does have the name. i was wondering if anyone has any insight as to why only one of them says 'record', and how you tell exactly which hub it is, cuz isn't there different kinds or campy record hubs?
adam: $5 for you if you make us a little easy to follow time table on the evolution of campy hubs! i was going to ask this question: my hub has Campagnolo (in the cursive script) as well as "Record" stamped on it, but it also has the famous World Logo... can you name the year for me, since i am too lazy to do my own research.
and, ps: pat on the back for being able to get a good pic of that thing... maybe it is my disgustingly old digital camera, or the fact that it focuses for me, but i cannot for the life of me get a good shot of the inside part of the hub. great photo!
and now for my next question: my campy hubs, all the campy hubs i have ever had actually, are not shiny. they don't sparkle. they are like dulled satinny alluminum rather than that sparkingly heavier looking metal. is there a way to polish mine to make them bright like that? those c-records on ebay are like jewelry... mine look like tin-cans. any help?
