Has anyone seen one of these before? I picked it up at a used bike shop in Seattle as a hub for another wheel build. The price was right for a disc hub with sealed cartridge bearings and straight pull flanges. I can't find out any information on the company. The hub body just says Equation.
any information is appreciated.

I still have not seen one. Pics would be helpful.

There are many Taiwanese companies that make hubs that are sold under many different labels.

I had a wheelset with Equation hubs (traditional using J bend spokes). I sold it along with my old hardtail to a buddy of mine.

A few months ago he and I were competing in a 12 hour endurance race and he broke the rear axle. Luckily I had a spare wheelset, so I was able to lend him my rear wheel- although he was running rim brakes and I disc brakes. He made do with front brakes only!

Anyhow, the rear hub lasted about 2 1/2 years on my friend's HT. After the axle failure, I wasn't able to find a replacement, so he ended up buying a new wheelset. I felt the quality was pretty decent- just know that finding replacement parts probably isn't an option.

Unfortunately I put the hub into storage into storage so i can't supply pictures right now I will try to post some when I get back into seattle. Mainly i was just wanting to get an idea of the quality of these hubs that don't seem to exist on the internet.
