From this poster, which I presume are the hubs,


They look like philwood in basic form factor. They look good nonetheless.

They have some simple clean lines and are turned from billet which makes for a much better hub... will watch and see how well these hubs are received and reviewed but will of course keep shopping local for all my own hubs.

Always like to see other people's work and and their set ups... most are more complex than ours but we do not mass produce hubs although that might be something to look at down the road.

The Victoire hubs look very nice and the splined driver and cog is a nice touch.
