Hub porn

I thought I would share this as I can't seem to keep myself from looking at pics of these hubs every couple of days. Seems like a great price for such quality and knockout looks.

If anyone else wants to post other hubs I into hub porn!

besides the branding and 4 less holes (which I guess is significant to some), they don't seem that much prettier than the standard fix/fix IRO hubs you can get for 40$

yeah..the benscycle hubs are boring/average/pedestrian. Nothing cool about them, really. Same thing as Formula/IRO/whatever.

I'm saving my content for the seat binder bolt porn thread. Or maybe the spoke nipple porn thread. I can't decide.

Nicest I've ever seen or ridden:

Zipp Track Hubs


"For additional strength, the rear sprocket and lockring threads are rolled rather than cut and all spoke holes are coined rather than simply drilled. "

Pretty pricey, too at $250...each.

My LBS recently did a large Phil Wood order.

Pretty pictures on their news page: https://twhitesbikes.co.nz/?p=413

The silver hubs and steel BB are mine.
