Hi all.

What can you tell about Speed-Tec? Just bought a Speedy1 front hub and am very interested to know more of this company.

Found these catalogue scans from here.

They were producing the tune parts for some time. And then decided to sell those parts under their own brand, cheating over the tune guy. That's what I heard.
The similarities between tune cranks, fast releases and the seatposts of that time are quite obvious...

Besides that, the parts seem to be good quality. I have a set of cranks since new in '95. They are nicely made and never failed me.

Thanks, Thias! Yes the skewers and seatpost look very Tune-like indeed. Interesting!
