Grand Cru Freewheel Hubs, 36h
These are the older freewheel rear hub with the stamped Grand Cru Logo. Otherwise, they are the same as the current Velo Orange branded one.
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 Grand Cru 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.

The 126mm hub vanished from mainstream production in the early 1990s. It coexisted with 120mm hubs for many years but got discontinued when 8 speed hubs came along needing 130mm OLD. Measure the OLD between your rear dropouts and if 126mm then get one of these while still available!
