Grand Cru Diagonale Rear Wheel (Touring Hub 135mm, 26 inch)

Grand Cru Rear Touring Hub laced to our 26" VO Diagonale Rim with DT Swiss spokes. 36 hole, 135mm frame spacing.

The Grand Cru Touring Hub is designed for long distance riding and heavy loads. The sturdy hub shell is our own design. It boasts a large-flange hub with room for four identical and rather large cartridge bearings. We use very high quality Japanese bearings of a common size and relatively easily replaced if they ever do wear out.

The axle is hollow and oversized. The free-hub body is steel for durability. There are three pawls with sturdy springs. The hub fits up to a 10-speed cassette; you can fit a 7-speed cassette by adding a 4.5mm spacer. The VO enclosed-cam quick release skewer is included

A video showing how to disassemble the Grand Cru hub for field servicing without tools can be found here.

The Diagonale rim fits tires 32mm 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 very 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).
