Hey everyone,

First post on here, I was recently given some GT hubs that say made in the USA on them, sealed bearings and look pretty sweet, can really find any info online about them, anyone know anything? im planning on using them on a '97 Zaskar build.

Thanks

Adam

+1

Mine - 20mm bolt thru axle front, rare as rocking horse poo 4-bolt discs. Rear has a lovely zip/buzz free wheel noise.

I have some of the GT hubs which have logo engraved in them but not 'Made in USA' laser etched.
These are much less valuable but quite nice hubs.

Here's the rear of a pair I had. Am I right in thinking that there were a couple of versions of the rear hub? The first version having a dodgy freehub? I also had a silver rear and the internal parts weren't interchangeable with this red one.
