NOS 98 record hubs(4 posts)

I am saving up for my next ride and want to build it up with Campy. I noticed that Total Cycling is selling 1998 Ti hubset for USD 109 plus shipping. This price beats new Centaur hubs, yet the Records are lighter, presumably stronger and smoother. Is there a reason I should not buy these?

Thanks and regards,

Carlos
Sounds like a dealKerry

These hubs will certainly take 10s cassettes, and are very well built (they're Campy!). Though not as light as today's Record/Chorus hubs, they'll last forever if well maintained and certainly are better hubs than the Centaur of today. The reason not to buy them would be psychological, not value or technical.

Make sure that the cassette that you want to use will fit on the rear hub. I remember that there was a hub that required a special ti cassette that was pretty dear. I do not remember enough details to be more specific, but a warning should be enough to help you. Otherwise that is a great deal.
Screaming deal!tmguy

I would buy a pair, but my wife would not be pleased. (New bike his year already ($4K).) I had thos hubs and they are very nice. Finish is better IMHO than the new ones. The alloy is different so they are very polished. 10-speed cassettes should be no problem. Check the tech section at campyonly.com

Peace!
