No-Record Hubs... low flange?

Ive never seen a pair before... only high flange.

Anyone have info? Other than "no-record" was a 60s thing.

Mostly just curious as to the low flange variation details. I just bought a pair.. and neither myself nor a few other devoted collectors had seen or heard of them.

They were around, but most folks preferred high flanges.

This is from 1967 Catalog 15.

Yeah, I was just reading something yesterday, about they didn't have Record written on their hubs, in the 60s. Mine are low-flange, but made in the early 80s. What I was looking for info about, was a set of early Super Record shifter levers I scored recently. They're not minty at all, the chrome on the band is pretty discolored, but the backplates are black, making them Super Record. What I was really after, was the levers themselves, that say Vicenza on them. Like that matters

Catalog 15 is post the no Record hub era. Think maybe they started stamping them Record in ...' 65 or '66.

I recall in 1974 that low flange (actually, mid-flange, in the case of Campag.) hubs were starting to come into vogue, after a 10-year stretch in which a high flange was a mark of quality. It is interesting to see some of the high-flange and mixed-flange hubs out there in today's market.

I never thought of high flange hubs as the mark of quality since all the low end Peugeots and Schwinns I saw everywhere had them. I built wheels with low flange hubs for my PX10 to differentiate it from those. It still has those Maillard 700 hubs and my PA10 has LF Campy Record.
