Hi, I have a set of wheels with some nice machined hubs with a sticker saying 'TOMO Radial Pat.', the hubs look very interesting, but I can't find any information on Tomo Radial. Do any of you guys know anything about them? I'm assuming that is the make of the hubs?

Here's a pic:

Any help will be much appreciated.

Anyone have any idea what hubs these are?

No idea at all but I can see their thinking behind the placement of the spoke holes. Seems a good way of coping with the direct pull forces in radial spoked wheels.

Mark.

I hadn't heard of them before, but a quick Google suggests they're German. I found this address:

Tomo-Radial-Naben
Biedenkopfer Weg 75
60489 Frankfurt

which seems to correspond to a residential street in Frankfurt. Googling that address finds the name "Tomas Klimecky":

Klimecky seems to have a number of bicycle-related patents in his name, but in a quick search I couldn't find one relating to this hub.

[ EDIT: here you go -

Quite an attractive hub. Is there a matching rear?
