Click on the image to enlarge it.We are going to be using a White Industries H3 rear hub for the rear wheel of our Gunnar Sport Project Bike.
White Industries is one of the few remaining bicycle component manufactures proudly manufacturing their products here in the U.S.A. Since the inception of White Industries in 1978, their CNC components have been designed, engineered, and manufactured in Northern California.
If you are lacing up a new set of wheels the H3 hub is a perfect choice. The hub shell design is a high/low flange which allows for a more even and better spoke tension with a hub spaced to 130mm. The hub design maximizes aerodynamic efficiency. Unique to the H3 is their titanium freehub body in a choice of Shimano or Campy configurations. White Industries feel titanium is the best choice in the freewheel application since it is nearly as light as aluminum and has the equivalent strength to many forms of steel.
