Lonely campy hubs club band

I'm looking for a nice rear hub to match this front hub.

the seller says it's Icarus, but I can't find a reliable source (with images in high res) to back that up.

Also, I'd like to know which campagnolo hubs used this particular combination of engraved shield/simple oil hole cover (without a raised channel) and this particular style of bearings.

Thanks!

Yes, thanks for the image, but the rear hub has a channel for the oil hole cover and the FH is missing the oil hole altogether.

Good catch. Do you think that changed at some point or its a different hub entirely?

That's the sort of stuff I'm trying to find out

Normally velobase is pretty up on things like this, but for the Campy MTB stuff it all gets a bit more obscure.

For the cognoscenti: is this bearing arrangement MTB specific, or can it be found on other hubs as well?

Are you sure there is an oil hole? It looks like someone put an oil hole cover on a Chorus or Icarus hub.

Yep, there is a hole. And if it's done at a later time the "culprit" must have done a very good job; no burrs, nice chamfer and no discernable difference in finish with the rest of the hub. I got the hub NIB (in a Record OR box) and it hasn't been laced.

Your hub has sealed cartridge bearings. Wonder why it even has an oil hole.

For the sake of either tradition or appearance.

I don't think I've ever put oil into an oil hole on a Campy hub, regardless of the bearing type.

Fuzzy brain but when I built my Kestrel CS-X (91/92) and burned the budget for the frame, I went with Ritchey Logic stuff and Bullseye hubs vs. the way cool Campagnolo O.R. gruppo. I thought they called it Olympus?? The neat thing though was interchangeability with the Record road. The hub indeed had that port and cover. The rear hub was the same as the road Record BUT possibly wider axle and spacer.

Its seems nearly impossible to find this stuff today. Was it offered only a year or two?

It could be out of this set too. The hubs are NOS in the box.

Has it? that seems weird. It has an adjustable cone and locknut. No bearing wrenches here at the moment, so I can't check. But I've never heard of Campy hubs (pre the system wheels) with cartridge bearings.

Some cartridge setups do use an adjustable "cone" (really not a cone but a threaded spacer) and locknut that are used to adjust preload on the bearing. I have some Ofmega and Specialized hubs built that way. That sure looks like the edge of the outer race and the usual rubber seal we see on a standard cartridge bearing. I'm not an expert on all things Campagnolo, so I can't say when that one was made, or what they call it. Try your cone wrenches on it and let us know what you find.
