From what I've read, the first carbon weave hub was produced by Nuke Proof in 1991. Now I've seen three types of nuke proof carbon hub, (not talking about the Ti hubs), and I've listed them above.

Were they in release at the same time at different price points, or is one earlier than the other, and which one came first?

Anybody with knowlege of these things, please take a moment to contribute. Thanks :D

so those were the first ones in 1991? Were they the ones prone to seperating the carbon from the aluminum flanges?

Here are the ones that I know of...Rear:

Skinny rectangular label spin on
Skinny Nuke Symbol spin on.
Nuke Symbol skinny Shimano 6/7
Fatter Nuke body...step-up cassett side flange (Nuke internal mechanism) shimano 8 (so as not to pay for shimano internal patent)
Fatter metalplate tapered cassett side flange shimano internal

By the way anyone with a "Step-up" Nuke internal I am looking for some internal bits....

Rectangular label were first generation ones ( yep, the ones prone to seperating the carbon from the aluminum flanges ) circa 1992

Nuke symbol were the next ones. ( yep, the ones prone to crack the aluminum flanges )

Badged ones were the last ones that were really Nuke´s ( yep, the best / ugliest ones in my opinion )

Fly´s were the last ones mades ( full alu. & engraved logo )


A couple of rectangular labels went high not so long ago:

A set of badged ones went high too, not so long ago:

http://cgi.ebay.es/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie ... K:MEWAX:IT




Despite to the stock ones, I have two “rare” items … one has a Nuke sticker & carbon center, but it seems to be a Shocktec re-labeled & the other seems to be a full alu. Proto whith a rare nuke sticker on it ¿ are those two real Nukes ? – I don´t think so … - If someone has more info about them …

Here´s some pics of mine´s, a Nuke catalog & some info about them …

Best regards.

max, thanks for that post...good stuff :)

I agree with your opinion, "Badged ones were the last ones that were really Nuke´s ( yep, the best / ugliest ones in my opinion )" being the best, but not the ugliest...those rectangular labels do nothing for looks, haha.

Now, you wouldn't happen to have a year for the best/ugliest ones, would you? I'm thinking 1995???
