Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Mack Hubs - Where are they?

Does anyone have any info about Mack Hubs out of Poland? They don't seem to have a website, or any indication of how to get them. They may as well not exist at all. I've only seen them on ebay.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm probably missing something but I don't see where to purchase the hubs in all the links posted above. I tried emailing about 2 months ago (to the email in the link 128 posted) but got no reply. Is there a link to buy them or is it just email and wait for a response.

I will be calling Maciek (the guy who makes them) early January - I will report back what's up with them.

BTW. I have two wheel sets with these and I love them. They are build up and forget kind. I had just two small issues with mine in over 6000k of unattended use:
1) the allen key hole started stripping (I have exchanged the bolt) as in another case reported on this forum
2) An LSB wrench overtightended one side, which resulted in dust cover dragging on the bearing - avoid excessive torque when tightening

Reporting back:
Yes, Mack hubs are still available, yes, gromada is distributing nearly 100% of them.

They are still hand made ( soon to be changed to CNC, so the quantities will be larger) and Maciej is making them as fast as he can. Yes, there is some backlog.

Maciej can be contacted at mackhubs@o2.pl
