Wolber TX Profil wheelset w/ Specialized hubs

700c
126mm rear
32 spoke

Rim inner width: 14.25mm
Rim outer width: 19mm

Spokes are 2.00mm DT Swiss straight gauge

Wheelset spins nicely and appears true and round.

Brake wear is even along rims, and very minimal. This is a low mileage wheelset.

Note: Rear skewer is ever so slightly bent at its threaded end but still functions fine.

Note: After taking photos, I noticed a blemish on the front rim. I determined it to be a light colored over spray. I've indicated it in an additional photo for clarity. The good news is that I was easily able to remove it with some light elbow grease.

This is the once blemished spot previously mentioned. Its been rubbed out since taking the photo and is now clean as it should be.

Those are cartridge bearing hubs. They are excellent hubs. I rode a set across the US in '97 and they are still very serviceable. I really should rebuild them one of these days but they turn smoothly.

Good to hear confirmation that the hubs are cartridge bearing. I've been under the impression that some Specialized hubs from the same era were sealed cup & cone. Looking at these hubs, the rear drive side sorta made me think there's cartridges in there. But I don't know how to tell without opening them up, and I haven't wanted to do that.

It's not hard to double check. If you unscrew the locknut, you'll see if it is a cartridge or cup and cone. I built a few wheels with these BITD as they are just terrific hubs and to my eye, these look like the cartridge bearing hubs.

We used to grab them at the shop and remove the axles and respace them for the BMX bikes. They weren't Phil's but the were excellent sealed bearing hubs. I picked up a pair last year NOS just to have for that very reason.

Those Wolber rims should be really good . I built a wheelset using similar Wolber Profil 20 rims and they turned out the be the strongest, stiffest C&V wheelset I have so far, even at just 28 H spoking. Never even had to re-true them yet, after building and riding them some years ago.
