Can somebody put me straight in terms of 'period correctness' for Ringlé Hubs please :?:

I know there's Bubba's, Super Bubba's, Super Eight's, Super Duppa Bubba's and Super Duppa Eights, what years did these babies all get released please?

Hi Neillll (let's make it four ls)
It's a bit hard for me to follow, but a good start would be to look in the Gallery & archive section, there's one Ringlé catalog (94 i think, not sure). Another source could be this http://www.firstflightbikes.com/vintage.htm it's a timeline year per yaer with a list of some of the components available that year, it already helped me.
Third, when Ringlé is written Italic and laser etched it's more recent (no idea of date though) than the one with straight letters and written with stickers.
To be complete (with what I know) Sun Ringlé is even more recent (after Ringlé was bought by Sun) and has little to do whith the old Ringlé parts we hate/love (depending on the direction of the wind).
Not much help, but a start.

Of course not Jez, i will follow your wise advice. I must be too old school sometimes.
I'm less bitter tonight, i'mhaving a little Baileys right now, my clearout on Ebay gave good results (i haven't lost money buying selling) so it's time to celebrate. Cheers
:D
