Another hub is stepping into the street fixed gear market. Vallie Components hubs!

* ISO disc cog mounting eliminates stripped lock ring threads.
* Dual sided for multiple ratios
* Thick symmetric flanges for a strong dishless build
* Massive 15mm hollow female axle can take any abuse you can throw at it.
* Oversize 6902 bearings to keep you rolling smoothly.
* Stainless Hardware to last through those salty winters
* Beefy M10 x 1.00 axle bolts
* Slide on bearing collars
* Accepts 44mm ISO disc cogs
* 120mm spacing
* Approx 450 grams

Lookin good!

    Damn! Looking very Cyber Punk. I want a set!!!

  • MightyChin

    Looks like a Level hub.

    Lyle is so sci I have a feeling every part of this hub was though about obsessively.


  • ^ OMG man you have NO idea, hehe..

    ^^ You couldn’t be further off the mark man. There’s some seriously HUGE differences between each of their designs..

  • duncan

    i’ve seen this thing in real life….
    its going to change things!!
    real slick and lyles some sort of bike genius…
    east vans coming up!!!!

  • Edward Scoble

    ….and now, the price! surely if it going to cost more than a Phil, it not exactly worth it.

    yeah, one of the differences between this and a LeveL is it doesn’t have little flanges for the cog to fit on, which means theoretical bolt sheerage, but they’ve got like 12 on the thing so it should be alright.

    wait, just to be a jerk, how is it different from mounting a iso cog on a disk brake hub?:

    I mean, you could be a jerk about it, or you could just be stoked on two little companies with similar views on how to improve an issue that maybe the most niche cycling market in the world faces (other than recumbent freestylers, maybe).

  • The differences with the Level hub would be the beefier axle (15mm), bearings (6902), and screws (10×1),and the non-proprietary cog (LFB/tomicog 44mm ISO).

    The differences between this and converting a disc hub are the same regarding the axle and everything attached to it. Not all converted disc hubs have standard chain lines; the Vallie hub has been specifically designed with a standard track chainline.

    Also, Vallie Components is producing 15 tooth ISO cogs, which are currently not produced by either of the other manufacturers.

    Regarding the comparison to Phil hubs, we’re looking at an inherently stronger axle and bearing design with a different cog interface. If you want a traditional hub, Phil makes a great one – we all know that.

    Sweet. Ben got me onboard emotionally (though seriously man, if we all got stoked on everything without being critical we’d get shoveled a lot of shit), Morgan got me mentally with the apt comparisons, and CyclingWMD with the pics. looking forward to trying em out!
