Gnutti Hubs

I would say not as good as Campy but interesting all the same. These have never been laced. I have dismantled checked, cleaned and repacked and adjusted bearings. Cups and cones showed no signs of use, ie: no tracks. Now to decide what wheels to build.

Sorry about the late response
Very interesting hubs. You are quite correct in that the skewers are of the later type. I am curious to know if the hub shells have the Gnutti name engraved on them anywhere. I have never seen large flange Gnutti hubs and suspect that these are not Gnutti and simply have Gnutti skewers. I have researched Gnutti further since I wrote the Classic Lightweights article and there is still much to learn. Sadly, my attempts to get cooperation from Gnutti in Italy has failed so far (they are still in business - but not cycle components)
