The influx of Eurobike product launches has begun and while I couldn’t make it over there this year, some friends at Chris King sent over some new product launches, some slated for spring 2016 and some now available. There’s a lot of information, so I’ll just list it below. In short: thru-axle, singlespeed, centerlock, boost and the return of turquoise! (more…)
Mash has collaborated with Phil Wood three times now and while the original high flange green hubs were very, very nice these battleship gray low flange models turned out exquisite. These bombproof hubs are 32 hole, fixed / fixed and would look great on a street or a race wheelset.

All-City Cycles recently took their popular Sheriff track hubs and re-worked them drastically improving the functionality. All while keeping the original design language. They lightened the axles, removed material at the flanges and topped off the re-design with Japanese manufactured 6902 bearings which roll incredibly fast and smooth while retaining excellent seals for all weather, all-day everyday durability.
The result is a hubset that weighs a mere 432g,198 for the front, and 234 for the rear. This makes it one of the lightest track hubsets in the world, a figure even more impressive when you consider All-City didn’t eliminate the usefulness of a fixed / fixed or fixed / free option as most racing hubs do.
The new Sheriff SL track hubs are available in 28 and 32 hole versions, silver or black, front and rear. See more at All-City Cycles and place an order through your local shop.
Got a fat bike? Want a thru-axle hub with an XD driver? Like American-made METALLLLLLL? Holler at the folks at Paul Component for their new limited edition disc RHUB with 197 x 12mm spacing.
Paul has responded to your requests and today announced three new thru axle hubs for your off-road bicycle of choice. New to the Paul hub lineup is a standard FHub disc 10 x 100, Fhub disc 15 x 150 for fatbikes and their WORD thru axle hub in 12 x 142. All three are made in Chico, California and in stock now, ready to roll at Paul.

Yowwwwwch! I’ve always loved those Royce Racing Gold hubs but I’ve never seen them so well documented on a bike before. These Firefly photos are oooozing with gold bokeh. See more at the Firefly Flickr!
Have a set of Chris King ISO or ISO DH hubs that you want to run on your XX1 system? I know I do and up until today, there hasn’t been an option. This morning Chris King announced their new ISO XD hub for SRAM’s XX1. The best part is, there’s also a conversion kit available for existing ISO hubs…
