Grand Cru Diagonale Front Wheel (High Flange Hub, 650b)
Grand Cru High Flange front hub laced to 650b VO Diagonale rim with DT Swiss spokes. 36 hole.
The counterpart to our rear Grand Cru Freewheel Hubs and Grand Cru Touring Hubs: like the rear hubs, our High Flange Front Hub features the same polished and clear anodized finish, chrome plated axle, and high quality Japanese bearings (the same that you might find on a hub that costs twice as much). The hubshell design is a VO original, and the Grand Cru logo is stamped - not laser etched - giving it a more classic yet very durable aesthetic.
The quick release in included.
Diagonale rims fit tires 35mm to 45mm wide. These rims are named after Les Diagonales de France, a series of cycle touring routes across France. You can guess that these are strong rims suitable for loaded touring as well as commuting and cyclo-touring.
Diagonales are triple box section rims; they are made from aluminum alloy that is highly polished. The eyelets are stainless steel. Outside width is 25mm.
Note: this is an oversized item, so our free shipping promotion does not apply. But your shipping cost will never exceed $22 for orders to the contiguous US. Shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, military addresses, and overseas will be quoted separately. Due to size restrictions, we can't send wheels to certain countries (at least not at reasonable cost).
