Can you identify these Campy Hubs?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Can you identify these Campy Hubs?

This one has a 9 speed cassette on it:

they look to me like gen1 9/10spd record hubs. the later 10spd record hubs had an oversize aluminum axle. i am also pretty sure all chorus and lower hubs in that era did not have the lube hole.

I don't know exactly what they are. I can say that they don't look like the Veloce hubs I have. I have a set of 9 speed Veloce hubs that came on a 98 bike and they look different than this. They do appear to have cup and cone bearings rather than cartridge bearings though.

Ahh, right. They are loose bearing hubs and the free hub body is silver, if that helps. The freehub body comes out when you overhaul the rear hub and it has those 3 pawls. Very annoying!

I'm no expert, but they look mismatched to me. The front looks just like the Record hubs laced to Campy Victory tubulars I recently bought. The matching rear 7spd freewheel hub looks very similar to the front. I'm fairly confident that it is a mid to late 80's vintage. That rear hub looks to be a more modern hub, late 90's early 2000 I'm guessing.

campagnolo hubs did not change much and at times were somewhat miss matched. for a while athena front hubs had no lube port but the rear did.

i did more research and there is the chance that the front hub is older, or even a lower level than record. it really doesnt manner a whole lot as most of their front hubs were mechanically the same and used the same internals. if you get us a picture of the ends i may be able to tell you more.

i am nearly positive that the rear hub is a first generation 9spd record hub.


here is a picture of 8spd record hubs. my guess is yours were just the 9spd version from a few years later:




any info on how the rest of the bike is equipped?

for kicks, here is a 7spd athena hubset. note how the rear hub is nearly identical to your 9spd hub and the 8spd record above. the front also looks very much like a veloce 10spd hub.

for referance, campy 7/8spd freehub bodies are black and 9/10/11spd ones are silver (some can also be swapped)

but the rear is not. it has a 9spd freehub body. the front could be, but i doubt it. more pictures are needed to confirm.

c- record hubs:




pretty soon we will get into a debate when "c-record" became record i know i for one have a 95 "c-record" crankset that is labeled as a record (but looks nothing like a record crankset)

Record skewers have D-rings on the nut; Chorus do not.

Only Record and Chorus got grease ports on the front.

1997-1998 assuming both hubs are of the same vintage and the rear hub wasn't retrofitted with a 9/10-speed freehub (I did that to both my 1996 Chorus hubs after Campagnolo discontinued my favorite 8 speed cassette) in which case it could be an earlier ergo era hub or maybe even C-record.

1997 was the first year for 9-speed.
1999 was the first year for the over-sized rear axle with the Record and Chorus groups.

Campagnolo used the C-Record forgings for a long time.

1996 Chorus front hubs are the same externally (the bearing diameter differs from Record though). The 1996 Chorus aero seat post and 220mm C-record part are identical apart from no Campagnolo shields stamped into the later Chorus part.

I still have two pairs of 1996 Chorus hubs.
