You thought I was going to update you on my Bishop road frame didn’t you? Chris had mentioned this project to me prior but I didn’t think the hubs would be done for NAHBS this year. The Bishop Bike and Victoire Cycles track hubs are made by Julien in his small shop in France. He machines each hub from 7075, which is arguably stronger than the commonly used 6061. Each hub is then finished by hand and prepped before being sent out. These photos are of the first batch.

The hub features a splined cog interface, with a traditional lockring-style threading on the way, along with hard anodized cogs, lockrings, axles and custom titanium bolts.
