Questioning if itís really a Campy hub.

It was the last piece needed to complete my panto bike. Bought off eBay.

no where other than the pantograph itself does it say ďCampyĒ on it.

plus it doesnít match my other low flange hub other than the skewer.

it it really campy or is it something like ofmega?






ofmega?

Looks like Ofmega CX to me based on the black sealed hub exposed. The oil hole doesnít make sense thoughÖ Very nice hubs also if they are.

On the locknuts of my Campy Record hubs, one side has the serrations that yours appears to have, and the other says "Camp" and the last two digits for the year.
...for example...




I'm not sure what is going on with the cartridge bearing, though. I've heard stories about people retrofitting them into Record hubs, though.

Thank you. That photo somewhat makes more sense. The rear hub has the world campy logo on it and itís not Panto with Campagnolo only Ernesto colnago.

As far as the date stamp, again I feel like campy parts could have been placed in another brands body.

I also need to stick a magnet to it. The rear hub is obviously anodized aluminum. This looks a little too shiny. More like steel.

Special request from Ernesto.

(Or perhaps I posted before considering all the information.)

The only thing I can say with 100% certainty is that skewer is genuine.

IIRC, the older CX hubs did feature an oiling port. But I don't remember if the older CX's had sealed bearings. Yes, an oil hole with sealed, cartridge bearings do not make any sense.
Unless Ofmega was just using up their stock of older hub shells with the oiling ports.
