money no object……..the best hubs.
Haven’t got a clue if these are any good but I quite like the look of them. Bloody expensive though and whether they’d last in uk conditions is another matter.Posted 5 years ago
having owned royce hubs (and have a pair on my road bike) i can confirm they are excellent quality. They work. Full stop. Havent had cause to touch them in 5 years.
King,of course, are nice but FWIW i like the fact that they’re uk made. Having said that, i’d like go give paul components or phil wood a go om my next mtb build.Posted 5 years agopuddingsMember
Have run Goldtec Hubs on my winter road bike (i9 in summer) and MTB’s without problems or service for a number of years. On the highly scientific front wheel spin test, they spin far longer than my mates DTs and Kings.Posted 5 years ago
Plus they make a good loud noise when free-wheeling and that seals the deal in my bookaaMember
machined from a solid block of ti i beleive.
For me, the rohce thing is,and its the same criticism of some other excellent uk manufactufers. You look at their websites and they look shit. And, they have no marketing budget. So, if you’re after high end hubs there are certain go to brands, thats not to say royce hubs aren’t great but where can you actaully see/feel a pair? Plus, royces website is lacking in technical info.
When all’s said and done, they are truly awesome hubs. I think chipps reviewed a pair and rated them highly.Posted 5 years agod45ythMember

funny as lots of riders have been having problems with kings freezing up and generally being a bit crap in cold conditions. Nothing funnier than watching someone having to wee on their favourite bling hubs to get them to work againPosted 5 years ago
When the last time time you actually saw this happen? King changed the ring-drive lube years ago to combat this. If you’ve seen it in recent years, I can bet that they hadn’t been serviced with the correct lube. 🙄
As usual, OP hasn’t even bothered saying type of riding or axle requirements.
As usual, lots of pointless uninformed recommendations, “what I have” replies, bickering, sniping and showing off!
disappointing! (except Cynic-al)
Really? It’s a ‘money no object’ thread! 20 year old mid range parts are a peculiar selection.Posted 5 years ago
