How about a big shout out to a Morrow Hub - can you say 70 years young and still has grooves on the original shoes. Overbuilt to the max - just repack and rerace :D

Still using....
1988 Deore 6 speed Thumbies

1988 Deore U-brake and 4 finger Levers (I'm finally replacing them for asthetic reasons - not because they don't work)

1991 Hope front hub on it's first set of bearings

1993? Mag 21's - Unserviced, pumped up once - I think keeping the boots on helped these survive although they were never actually raced.

1. XT derailleurs M737
2. XT rear hub M737
3. UN-72 bottom bracket (UN-51 died in short order)
4. Sugino Impel 700 cranks

umm...

...nothing else has lasted the distance. Although my Middleburn hardcoat rings nearly qualify.
