Hubs

  • Ambrosio Zenith Hubs

I have been using these hubs since 2001 and they are always the hub I would recommend. They are now available in 28, 32 & 36 hole and in both Shimano & Campag and are not expensive. Do not, however, be put off by the low price as the hub is of very good quality.

Material - Made in ergal 7075 T6 hot forged CNC worked,rolling on 4 shielded bearings.   Please ring to discuss your exact Hub requirements.

Spokes


Sapim or Alpina F1I always use  spokes on all wheels, no compromise on quality.  Ring me to discuss your requirements e.g. Single-, Dubbel- or Straight Guage spokes. or I always use

Double Butted Spokes: 
Can be easily identified by a change in spoke diameter near the head of the spoke and near the threaded portion of the spoke. Double butted spokes are lighter than straight gauge and offer better ride qualities due to a more flexible center section. These are generally very strong, however spokes with 1.5mm center sections are not recommended for mountain applications.

Single Butted Spokes
These spokes can be identified by a single change in diameter between the neck and the body of the spoke. The neck is slightly thicker than the body to improve durability for disc brake and other heavy-duty applications. Single butted spokes are slightly heavier than double butted, but are also slightly less expensive. Single and double butted spokes are used for similar applications. Single butted spokes with 2.3mm neck diameters are also useful for wheels to be rebuilt with used hubs that have worn mounting holes in the flanges.

Straight Gauge Spokes
These are the simplest spokes for in any type of general purpose or heavy-duty application. They have a constant diameter throughout their length, which makes them slightly heavier than double butted spokes. Straight gauge spokes offer a stiffer ride than single or double butted spokes because of their thicker cross section.
