I prefer the old fatter ones. I specifically hunted them down when I wanted some a few months ago. I just think they look better, prefer the old style sticker as well.

I had some Hope XC hubs in that green, much nicer than the current team-green they do...

unfortunaly they were stolen a few weeks ago along with the bike they were attached too :-(

Interestingly in the ads from 95 - 96 only colours available are Silver, Red, Black and Blue

No Purple or Green - although they are Mk2's from the narrower centre

I have a pair of Blues which reside on my SC Bullitt DH - only hub which lets you run a 185 disk on the rear of the 01 frame!!
