Submitted by Russ Tebay a cross-country rider from Leeds, England

Date Reviewed: August 27, 1996

Bottom Line:   

The Goldtech hub is a two part hub similar to the hope Ti hub
with a grade 5 titanium axle and two 7075 flanges bonded onto each
end. The hub is mega stiff under drive loads and well sealed against crud
& water ingretion. It runs in oil (not grease) and ticks really loadly but
who cares.


Cleaning it is a brease you just pull the freewheel off (literally) clean off
the insides and re-assemble. It also has an oil injection port to flush the
roller and ball bearing set inside.


The ball-bearing set comes with about 0.5 mm of play in it which is a little
disconcerting but the bearings have lasted over 18 months without so much as
a squeak and still run as smoothe as when I bought it despite the mud/sand/rain
of Northern England.


360 grms is not light for a rear hub when some roll of the production line at
280 grms but it has very high quality materials and hasn't complained at some
of the ridiculous smacks its had to withstand.

All good stuff.

This makes it quite difficult to insert the fork axle. I actually had to center the sleeve with the help of a s ... Read More »

I have a Sandman Hoggar Ti. I want to build another wheelset but can't seem to source a 165mm rear hub from anywhere (other than the modified Shimano one from Sandman). 1. Does anyone still make a 165mm rear hub? 2. Could I shoehorn a 170mm Hope Fatsno hub in there? What negatives could this pro ... Read More »

Litespeed Ti, full XTR, King rear hub for sale (and question)

Also- any guesses on the model? I'm not sure on the model name, would be good to know. Any litespeed experts? It's in the mtbr ads. I believe it's a litespeed (that's what the previous owner told me, anyway), and the welds look beautiful, so it's certainly their level of quality. Full XTR com ... Read More »

White TI hub spacer/ axle end ?

I am trying to fit the older version white TI wheelset on my wicked fat chance. My frame being 130 mm rear I have a 135 TI hub. Apparently there was a left side axle end 12 mm 130 a to set the width to 130. The new and current versions are now 15mm axles and the older ones 12mm. A call to white sa ... Read More »
