    fitted up on some of the smaller racers

    really one heck of a wheel and brake





    I kinda dig straight pull spokes and big diameter drums with wide shoes

    especially when they aren't very heavy

    the straighter the pull, the more nervous i get about a spoke head breaking out of the hub. and also about the braking forces "winding up" rim on the hub. but i guess a little bike will only go slow and have a small rider.

    ps the proportions of that set-up have me wondering from what bike did it originate.

    that front wheel came off a nearly 600 pound Italian bike

    I've never heard of one breaking unlike the early BMW hubs

    only fetched 113 with a signed Borriani record........
