The Paul Components High Flange Rear (black) is a single speed hub with large diameter flanges.
Paul Components machine these hubs from three inch round bars of 6061 aluminium. The hub shells are put through four different machining processes before they go to finishing. The end result is something to be proud of. The wide flanges have six window cutouts in them to save weight and draw on the influence of classic track hubs.
The hub shells are available with dedicated fixed gear threading on one side only, or in a flip-flop version with fixed threading on one side and freewheel threading on the other. Proper left-handed lock ring threading keeps fixed gear cogs secure, and heavy-duty stainless steel lock ring is included.
The axle is ground from 7075 aluminium, which has a great strength to weight ratio. The outer lock nut faces are made of knurled steel for a solid grip against dropouts.
Paul Components High Flange hubs use high-fill sealed bearings. Spoke holes are chamfered to reduce stress on the head and elbow of the spoke.
The chainline on the High Flange Rear is spaced to 44mm for the fixed cog, and 48mm for the freewheel.
