One of my favourite boutique hub makers is White Industries. A company based out of Petaluma California that designs and manufactures beautiful high end hubs as well as a few other interesting products. A hub set that I often recommend to road riders is their T11. It comes equipped with a machined 6061 shell, high quality sealed bearings and a titanium free hub for ultimate strength and longevity. With 7 colours to choose from and spoke drillings from 20 holes up to 36 holes these hubs leave little to be desired.
For those riding fixed wheels White Industries has the perfect hub that employs a splined interface for the cog which pretty much guarantees that your rear hub will never become stripped like conventional threaded hubs sometimes do. They produce numerous sizes from 13 teeth up to 20 teeth in both 3/32 and 1/8th widths. These bullet proof cogs are made from 8620 case hardened steel.
Another innovative hub from White Industries is their eccentric "Eno". It enables riders to run a single speed and make a chain tension adjustment with the twist of the hub axle. You have the option of a single cog with their unique splined interface or their single freewheel.
Cognoscenti Cycles will be carrying the entire line of White Industries hubs, as well as their unique track cogs and their bomb proof freewheels. Drop us a line if you want a lovely set of custom wheels with White Industry hubs.
