Please Help ID these Campy hubs.


I am certainly not an expert with old Campy bits. I know just enough to get into trouble. Looks like the the two hubs with the square quick release may be Triomphe. The other rear may be Victory? It has never been laced into a wheel. Wondering just what i have. Thanks!

It's all about the skewer, isn't it?

I would agree with you, but the Victory one might also be Chorus. Their skewers look very similar if not the same.

The bearing races on your hubs are very similar to the old Nuovo Tipo. Not nearly as nice as Record. And they don't adjust as easily as Record (ime). But they're incredibly durable and work just fine.

I would lace these up but they are 36 hole and all my rims are 32.

Triomphe, Victory, and Chorus hubs were all derived from Gran Sport (aka Nuovo Tipo) and share the same axles, cones, and cups. The differences are the finish and the skewers.

‘86ish Victory/Triomphe propaganda as well as early Chorus Athena information



I agree the ‘Solo’ hub is likely Chorus the other two Victory/Triomphe.

How do you tell a Victory hub from Chorus?
