Grand Cru Diagonale Front Wheel (High Flange Hub, 700c)
A Grand Cru High Flange 36 hole hub laced with DT Swiss spokes to a 700c Diagonale rim.
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.
The Diagonale rim fits 35mm to 45mm wide tires. The rims are named after Les Diagonales de France, a series of cycle touring routes across France. From the name you can guess that these are very strong rims suitable for loaded touring as well as commuting and cyclo-touring.
They are triple box section highly polished alloy. The eyelets are stainless steel. Outside width is 25mm.
