New BORG Wheels hubs

Posted by Malcolm Borg

Hub supply is an issue so it make sense to get my own made for all our wheels.

So the first that will arrive are the new disc brake hubs.

These share the same bearings and freehub as the 2:1 hubset.

Flange size is large at 59mm which reduces the spoke tension changes when compared to a small flange design. The hubs flange spacing is kept as wide as possible to maximise spoke bracing angles.

The bearing used are from NTN. NTN are one of the world's top tier bearing companies and these bearing are used solely in our hubs. The Cycle Clinic is also an NTN bearing distributor. The bearing used in the hub shell are 6902 to ensure decent life.

The freehub uses 4 independently sprung pawls running in a 36T ratchet ring.

This same bearing arrangement for the rear hub and the freehub is used in the new rim brake hub. The front hub you already know. It the same as used in the 2:1 hubset.

Rear flange spacing is 16/39mm to ensure stiff rear wheels. Finish will be black and silver. The same bearings offered in the 2:1 hubset and the freehub is the same as the 2:1 and disc brake hub.
