Bicycle Hubs are the Hearts of your Wheels and We are constantly rebuilding and restoring Vintage Bike Hubs for use on our Lux Low Wheels and Bicycles. The argument can be made that not much has changed with bicycle hubs, still an axle, bearings, and a shell and most of the Greater Innovations have been braking and multiple Speeds.  The Earliest Rear Hubs were Fixed Gear and crude Decelerators were added to Fixed hubs around 1896. The First True Coaster brakes showed up around 1898. I would say the innovation of the coaster brake was the largest contribution to the Bicycle hub through time, although other inventors would surely have an argument for that. This Eye Candy is some of our Hub Stash Enjoy!

  These are some of the Hubs from the Lux Low Hub Collection, although most of these are just the stock for building Lux Low Wheels. I Just happened to Snap photos when full and with a heavy week of wheel building they could be empty again. Most of the Hubs are New Departure, Morrow, Bendix, Schwinn, Corbin, Eclipse, Torrington,  and Musselman. Unfortunately Most Turn of the Century (TOC) hubs are unmarked, making them sometimes hard to identify. Our TOC hubs stay on the bikes any ways. You will Notice The First New Departure Coaster brake in the Photos, it was on the Rear of out 1898 Iver Johnson we had, Unfortunately it is Gone but Note worthy in History of Hubs. Enjoy The Eye Candy as it is one of our passions.
