campy sheriff star hubs

I am quickly approaching my 36th birthday, and I'm feeling it. I am tired, and my knee brace is starting to stink after months of repeated use. The thought of another bike winter is daunting. The war against nature is neverending .......open-ended, and it looks as if we're gonna get pounded like Fallujah soon enough.
Time to stop riding? No.
Look to this forum for sympathy? Ha
I just a little help.I need something to keep me going. Inspirado, if you will ( Tenacoius D style)
So I am looking for a set of 36 hole Campy Record Pista sheriff star hubs for my pending JonnyCycles build.
Anyone willing to part w/ a set?? This is a serious plea.I have some cash, but am also willing to trade for paintwork.
Thanks in advance for the multitudes of PM's w/ kind offers.

Here's a pic of the hubset ........Bottom of the page from Businesscycles website

Just be forewarned that there are stories of catastrophic failure of these hubs in street use. I wouldn't trust 'em for heavy pounding on asphalt.

It's hard to believe that jasonsan hasn't already seen that picture, as someone trots it out every single time these hubs are discussed.

I have an extra 32H set, and I see them all the time on ebay and cl. Just search for C-Records. 36H might be a bit tougher to find.

Actually, upon perusal of the businesscycles link, it seems that business cycles lists the hubs, NOS, 32x32 hole, $449.50/pair. Probably email them to make sure.

"CAMPAGNOLO
Pista (small flange) -
3232, 3236 or 3636 - $349.00/pair.
Record Pista (large flange) -
3232 - $449.50/pair. "

I was kinda joking about that picture. Ride what you like, I surely don't care. Ask ceya for his input on this. I'm sure he knows a bunch.

Thanks for the info......yeah, I am aware of the fun risk involved.
I also emailed a few places to check their stashes, and was gonna call Businesscycles on Monday.
I may have found some, and am expecting a PM reply sometime soon.

We've been collecting examples of hub failures under radial spoking, and of 139 hubs the highest number of any type (12) were Campy C-Record. We don't know whether the process selected for C-Record hubs in particular, since we simply asked shops and distributors for pro-level track hubs with radial spoking failures. However, it's pretty clear that they do break a fair amount. We started collecting hub failures for crossed spokings as well, since it became clear that radial spoking wasn't really the horrendous hub-breaker that it was made out to be (we'll put out the results before long in more detail); so far it looks like we'll get more crossed-spoke hub failures than radial ones, although again there are more crossed-spoke hubs out there by a good measure. Again, however, the most common instance is the C-Record (we only count Campy, King, Paul, Phil, Dura Ace, Suzue ProMax, Suntour Superbe, etc. -- no inexpensive hubs).

All that being said, hub failures are quite rare, and typically the rim fails long before the hub. The hub shown in the thread above is not typical of actual hub failures while riding -- they are nearly always zippered fractures from one spoke hole to the next, occasionally penetrating to a flange cutout, but never traveling through multiple cutouts. The hub above looks very much like a hub subject to a hard sideways hit, such as a crash of a car rack. With typical hub failures, you can expect to have an unrideable wheel, but we didn't see one in our study that should have caused a crash.

All that being said, there are other bling hubs out there. Have you checked out the colored Phil Wood SLR's at Yojimbo's Garage? Or the carbon Suzue ProMaxes? Or watch for a pair of Suntour Superbe Pro hubs (there's a beautiful pair of new old stock low flanges on eBay right now)? Or just cough up the money for what Dura Ace 7600's are running these days? Nice hubs all. Or just get a set of Zipp track hubs custom built with their Pave rims -- bombproof and you can't get much flashier (and with what C-Record hubs cost, you won't pay that much more either!!!).

All City ones look just as nice and more reliable, but yeah, I'll try to look for some on Ebay, and i'll pm you if I ever see one come up. Check your CL too!, someone posted a 80's track bike with sheriff hubs once for < $600 >.>

Campagnolo products are seasoned with the finest spices in all of Italia.

And you're replying to a 5-year-old thread. If anyone's still looking for Campy large-flange hubs, Electra Ticino Lux hubs are similar:


FWIW: I'll be selling my set soon. Standard freewheel (not track/fixed) 24-hole front, 32-hole rear. I've lost the rear QR- sorry

Built up some of the Electra hubs for a guy last week. Finish quality on them was the best of any Taiwan sourced track hubs I have seen. When they are mounted on a bike you can easily mistake them for the real thing unless you really look close. Only down side is they only come in fixed/free. A single fixed version would be the bees knees.

Reading that makes me never want to buy any Campy product. Not because of the quality issue, but the shear arrogance of the company's response. If that's how they stand behind their products I can spend my money elsewhere.

Cut them some slack... we are talking about a hub (and argument) that came out over 10 years ago. There are PLENTY of those hubs still rolling around velodromes in Europe. When used as they were intended they are a elegant and functional design. They were designed and made obviously before riding fixed on the street had really blown up and you really can't fault them for choosing not to design their TRACK hub for the rigors of street riding. They are not the only ones. Shimano has also had some pretty specific stuff to say about riding their track hubs on the street and about lacing patterns as well.

More than the failure issue the complete lack of the dust seals associated with road hubs is reason enough to not ride campy track stuff on the street.

I saw a pair of C Record Pista hubs on Ebay last night. I think the starting bid was $300. I'm at work, so I can't find them for you right now.

Fair enough. I suppose I can't disown Shimano too. I already have way too much of their stuff. It just bothers me how companies (in general) handle these sorts of things.
