Anyone got any idea when this hub was made? It's possibly not retro but it ain't new either.

Cheers :)

I've got one of them, has it got a grease nipple in it as well? I think they might actually still make them, but I bough mine in about 1996/7

1996 sounds about right, it's laced to a Mavic 217 SUP CD which is about that era i think?

How much did you get it for in the end? Was watching it, but decided I didn't need yet another non-matching front wheel! :)

£21 plus postage :roll:

Not cheap, but i think that hub was fairly dear when new?

£21 sounds pretty good to me for a nice wheel like that. Can't remember how much I paid new but probs over £50 for the hub.

Well, the main reason i got it was 'cos the rim matches the back one on the Kona. That has an M737 hub and i was hoping that the Middleburn hub was from roughly the same year as the XT one (1994?).

I've got a NOS blue Middleburn hub like that, '97 sounds about right to me. :)

Bought my first middleburn hub in '94. Replaced it with the same again in '98.

1994.
They're still serving me well!
When I recently spoke to Matt in Middleburn, he remembered their conception in about '92.
