    White SS hubset?

    Hi there.

    Im into building a white bike and then i meen white!

    But i cant understand why it is so hard to get a pair of white hubs...

    I have looked on the halo but they are too black on the sides and the pro model is only for 36h. And it isnt gonna work whit my white velocity!

    So do you guys have any ideas?

    White ss hubset please.

    Regards Tobias

    Phil Wood has recently made some white track hubs. You might check and see if they have or can make white ss hubs.

    Milwaukee Bicycle Co anodizes hubs. They don't have white on the site but I bet they could get you set up for it.

    White is not a color that can be anodized. The Phil's are powder coated and then the logo airbrushed on. Powder presents it's own issues with thread toloerances, spoke holes, and bearing bores. Not sure on the Syncros as I haven't played with one.

    I have been i contact whit Mark at Phil. Unfortunately the 30 white hubs they were made is sold. But it werent any problem for me. Because those hubs was no disk only and fixed.
    Well well.

    They maybe will send an other set to the powder coat and then i maybe will get my hubs. But just maybe.

    Just Contact Phil if you are intrested. They need about 20 more pepole to do that.

    But a bird have told me that a shop called The Freewheel in San Francisco, Ca have 1 pair left. The hubs are 32 hole high flange single fixed rear
    If you would like to purchase them you can give him a call. The phone# is 415-752-9195

    on profileracing.com today it says they're doing white hubs to be available starting in February

    Profiles are nice and beefy, and cheaper than Phil's. I run a set of black Profiles on my SS
