Visit my eBay store  
Brand new old stock, never laced, high-flange front hub, the top-of-the-line by hub specialist Sansin. This exact same hub was also marketed (only with different side decals and center logo) as the SunTour Suberbe Pro (sealed cartridge bearing, tandem version.) Sansin made all of Suntour's hubs, and several other brands too.

Some very, very minor, inconspicuous shopwear

Choice of spoke drillings: either 40 or 48. Sold either with or without Sansin skewer.

One-piece forged alloy body with solid dished and beveled flanges, reinforced thicker in the spoke-hole area. Very strong and very kind to spoke elbows. Flange diameter is about 71.5mm; the spoke-hole circle diameter is 63mm. Holes are beveled and sized for standard (14 guage, or 2.0mm) spokes, although extra heavy-duty 13g (2.3mm) spokes (like DT 'Alpine' and Wheelsmith 'Downhill') will also fit, very snugly but without any enlargement of the holes necessary.

With pair of very amply sized #6001 high-precision, Japanese-made cartridge bearings. Commonly available (in various grades) from bearing houses and better bike shops, but these are unlikely to wear out, due partly to being somewhat overspec'd for the job, and thanks also to the effectiveness of the combined seals: external dust/waterspray shields are affixed to the axle, just outboard of the cartridges' neoprene seals. For any contaminants to enter the bearing, they would have to first penetrate the tiny gap at the perimeter, then turn 90 degrees, then travel about 1cm (against centrifugal force) toward the hub center, then turn 90 degrees again to penetrate the seal--not likely!

The bearings are very, very smooth--as smooth as any, ever. They can be adjusted with normal 13mm cone wrenches (what look like "cones" with wrench flats are actually the cartridge retainers, cylindrical in shape.)  Axle is standard-sized, chrome-molybdenum alloy steel, 9mm, and can also be easily converted to nutted track style, if desired. The included axle is hollow, to use with a quick-release skewer. High-quality Sansin skewer can be either included or not included, as desired. If not included, you will need to furnish your own, unless you use a nutted, track-style axle (not included; if you need one please inquire.)

Made in Matsumoto, Japan, c. early 80's.

Questions and answers about this item

Q: Is the width 120mm? Do you know of another source for the matching rear 48H hub? Thanks. Avery
A: Hi Avery- the OLND width is 100mm, standard for fronts. (120 is used on some rears, mostly either older road, or track.) I do have an available, matching 48H rear, used and in excellent condition, which is currently laced to... Continue reading
