The High Flange Rear is a single speed hub with large diameter flanges. Many options are available for threading, axle spacing, and spoke count.
We machine these hubs from three inch round bars of 6061 aluminum. The hub shells are put through four different machining proccesses before they go to finishing, but it's totally worth it. The front and rear have the same flange widths and diameters for easy wheel building and a perfectly symetrical set of wheels.
High Flange hubs now use a special extra strong aluminum axle with stainless knurled axle faces. Fancy machined bolts and washers keep them on, although there is a quick release axle option
The axle is ground from 7075 aluminum, which has a great strength to weight ratio. The outer lock nut faces are made of knurled steel for a solid grip against dropouts. Two axles are available with 120mm or 130mm outer lock nut spacing. The ends of the axle are threaded to receive our stainless steel axle bolts. Spare parts are available to convert between axle lengths.
