Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Can you ID these hubs?

Hi, can anyone identify these hubs?
No markings on the hubs or the rims, the spokes are Pillar.
The front wheel (20h) weighs 530g and the rear (24h) 690g. The rear has rim tape and neither have skewers.

The shells look like Formula to me, but I have never seen one with the machined rear DS flange like that has. My guess is they were made for a OEM spec.

Those wheel weights would indicate a pretty crazy light hubset. Figuring 375g for each rim and 5.5g for each spoke/nipple leaves 228g for BOTH hubs. I'm sure one of my guesses is off there, but regardless those were not built for clydes.

Thanks canam73,
I have no experience with 'light' stuff, the axles are non magnetic so they maybe aluminium.
I thought they were distinctive enough that someone might recognize them.

Huey and Jiggle, thanks, they do look like XR-200's. I measure them at 21.5mm deep and 18.5mm wide, so just slightly smaller than the specs.
