looks like iro has some new low flange hubs, they look really nice the track nuts look nicer, does anyone have any more info? i may be wrong, they might have had these before, i might have just not noticed them.

and it looks like the old iro hubs now come in 120, 126, and 130mm spacing. i can't wait to order some new hubs!

i also heard there were some new Kogswell hubs, does anyone have any info on these?

I'm glad to see IRO finally went with the more functional low flange. High flange is strictly for the fashionable "look at me" set.

Kogswell always makes great stuff. Heck I'd buy his even if it was high flange.

straight from sheldon brown:

Flange
A raised circular rib around a part.

* The usual use for this term in bicycle usage is to refer to the part of a hub that the spokes attach to.

Most hubs in current production are "small-flange" or "low-flange" designs, where the flange is no taller than it needs to be to provide a suitable place for the spoke holes to be drilled.

"High-flange" or "large-flange" hubs have a larger flange, usually drilled out for lightness. They are transmit torsional forces with less stress to the spokes than small-flange hubs do, but this is not a problem in practice with modern equipment. High-flange hubs can make a wheel with slightly greater lateral strength than equivalent small-flange hubs, because the spokes create a wider bracing angle to the rim. This makes them popular with track sprinters, who create greater-than-normal side loads on their wheels.

* A less common bicycle use of "flange" is to describe a particular style of axle nut, commonly seen on cheaper bicycles. See track nut.
