Default Hubs

In putting my project together: I am looking for the look of Chris King hubs in anodized purple, but have heard that although Chris King hubs are amazing, they have an clicking sound that I think would really bother me while riding. I am considering going the route of Phil Wood without the purple . I want to run a Sachs Maillard 8 speed freewheel on them. What would be some other options in anodized purple besides Chris King? Ringle' ? (did Ringle' offer a hub to be used with a freewheel?).

Correct me if I am wrong, but on freehubs the paws would be in the cassette, thus the hub would not give you the clicking.

So I guess Chris King hubs are only seup for cassette's and not freewheels?

Default purple hubs

I'm pretty certain the 1st Ringle hubs took screw on freewheels: not sure if a 8spd freewheel would fit on tho' ?

Another option for colour could be American Classic hubs from around the same time

In the U.K. HOPE's first hubs took a screw on freewheel (purple flanges were a possibility)

Period correct options for a threaded purple hub are few and hard to find...

Ringle did offer 3D Violet Bubba hubs in spacing correct for an 8 speed freewheel, as did...

AC components

TNT

If you are looking for the hottest setup, I would contact Phil Wood and order a custom anodized set...they will be the last hubs you ever buy.

cheers,

rody

Rody: I would if I could. They don't do special order anodized. I have tried.
