    Dura Ace High Flange Hubs - Back in stock...

    Before the shill flags are raised, please note that I am in no way connected with bikepartsusa, but I was quite pleased to finally find these hubs for less than $289 on ebay. At $150, I thought that they were quite the deal. I just built them up to Open Pros and am pleased. Thought that others may be interested.

    I am glad that I found some other fans of the high flange. Do you know when Shimano stopped producing the 7600 model series? I was looking for DA hubs, but I did not like the appearance of the newer, low flange design.

    I was thinking of buying a few to post on ebay, but then I thought that I would rather just pass the word along.

    Are these things sealed, or are they of the looseball NJS approved variety....

    I like NJS, but I like sealed better!

    I just noticed that the front axle is 9mm. That's not normal, is it?

    I wish SR Suntour still made Supebe Pro Track hubs. Can they do that if we ask them nicely?

    No, because SR Suntour is not the same as Suntour.

    At this point, the old Maeda-SunTour had disappeared, and a new company, SR SunTour, had taken over. SR SunTour maintained two offices in Japan for R & D and for Japanese sales. Taiwan Sakae Ringyo used the SunTour brand name because it had better recognition. Taiwan Sakae Ringyo was a Taiwan component maker, like Falcon, Joy Tech, Long Yi, or SunRace.

    SR SunTour owned the name "SunTour" but they did not own SunTour's patents, intellectual property, or the rights to any of the pre-1995 designs. Various people tried to buy the tooling for SunTour Superbe Pro components, but Mori sold the tooling for scrap

    Aren't most axles and dropouts 10mm? Or am I sniffing too much glue.

    I think that it is 10mm in the rear, 9mm up front (at least with Shimano).

    That definitely checks out - I run these hubs and love 'em.
    Anyone know is the twenty-eight hole variety are going to
    be available again? I haven't seen those in years.

    the description of the front hub on the bikeparstusa site says "LF" - Low Flange? are these indeed the high flange ones?
