NIB/NOS Campagnolo Nuovo Record Strada HiLo Rear Hub + Low Flange Front Hub + QR's: 36H - 126mm - PRISTINE & UNOBTANIUM!
One of the truly rare and obscure parts from the classic Campgnolo era! The mythical Campy High Low hub was reportedly custom ordered by the 1972 West Germany Olympic team, and then later released to the public in low numbers in 1981 (shown in the 1982 Olympic catalog). The idea was the asymmetric flanges reduce the wheel weakness induced by dishing a wheel to fit a multi-speed freewheel. How much of a difference this makes, I'll leave to the engineers to debate. What I can be sure of is this hub will get you some praise and inquisitive looks on L' Eroica or your local club ride or visitors to your shop's display case!
This time capsule hubs are part of the Nuovo Record Strada gruppo, and was often issued with the Super Record gruppo. True Super Record hubs ONLY difference is they have 6/4V titanium axles (made by O.M.A.S.), and are exceedingly scarce.
New in original box, complete with original wax paper instruction sheet, cardboard hub separator and attached wax paper cover. Hubs are VERY close pristine, the only thing keeping it from that label is the rear hub's center shell back side has a scratch near dead center from the oil port clip being rotated. Otherwise, they're as good as when they came from the factory in the 70's or 80's. Bearings spin beyond buttery smooth and perfectly adjusted. Grease is still wet, viscous, and perfect with no need to repack (probably for a long time). Box is near mint.
