Campagnolo Hi-Lo hub

Postby silverlight » Tue Feb 19, 2013 7:22 pm

hi
Rummaging through my boxes i came across a pair of Campagnolo hubs that i had forgotten about.
I was told (not sure how true this is) was that the Germans used these in the race meets in the 80's.
I was wandering does anyone know if there are any benefits to this design.
Thinking about using these on a recent purchase.

The one i have seems to be a road version,
I only have the rear like this, the front seems to be a normal record small flange.

more googling, Hiliary offers this
A special rear hub with a high flange on the freewheel side and a low flange on the left-hand side was introduced in 1982 – the difference in flange sizes was supposed to help even out the spoke tensions between the freewheel and non-freewheel sides of the wheel.

and another thread
on page 18 of the 1982 Olympic catalogue.
some more at the old CR archives

I've often come across the German Olympic team explanation for the production of these hubs too. I understand that they are quite rare and sort after. I wonder what it would fetch on ebay - but I would hang onto it myself. Thanks for posting the great photo.
