I have an odd little hubset made in the 70's by Hi-E. Not very common here in the US, so I imagine, not common at all in the UK.

Image


Hi-E mostly made hubs and a few other bits, cages, rims, etc. The hubs were crazy light for their time, I think the front is under 5oz.

They also made quick release skewers (not included) out of Ti with nylon wing nuts. They were prone to break in the back, so most folks just replaced them with normal skewers.

Asking $1

At any rate, nice set, rear is Hi/Lo or Asymmetrical and slotted for bladed spokes and is 24 hole. Front is 36 hole low flange.

More pictures here:

Asking $150 USD (about 95£) shipped from the U.S.

I also have a rear 24h tubular rim (unbadged, but I think it's an Araya Aero 4) that I'll include for the extra shipping, but that could be pricey from the US.

Open to trades for a few bits, contact me if you'd like a list.
