Freewheel Rear Hub, 126mm
Finding a high-flange freewheel hub that is both high quality and affordable isn't easy to do these days, and it's even harder to find one in 126mm spacing for older frames. The Velo Orange Freewheel Hub fills that gap perfectly. The hubshell is cold forged and CNC'd, while the high polish clear anodized finish will hold up to even the worst weather. The bearings are sealed cartridge, so they'll be happily spinning for years to come without requiring maintenance.
The quick release is included and the hub accepts standard English thread freewheels. Suitable for most 5, 6, and 7 speed freewheels.

I wanna buy a dozen of these. They are super high quality.
This hub needs to be appreciated for being the only high-end sealed-bearing high-flange freewheel rear hub on the market. Even better, it's designed in a way that the drive side locknuts/spacers can be removed and the axle re-spaced to 120mm if desired. My only gripe is that it has circular slots rather than elongated slots like a Campagnolo Record hub, but that's merely a preference. This is an excellent hub, and I've recommended it to anyone who will listen. It pairs nicely with Interloc Racing Design's Cyclone freewheels if you want a truly high-end rear hub/freewheel combo.
Keeping the old classic going with new rear clysdale wheel being built. Will see if it holds up under my weight.It's a replacement for a wheel built in the 1990's - Mavic hub and Campagnolo Montreal rim.
