I was fortunate to learn more of the history of my bike from someone who knew the frame builder well, illness see the original post and comments here. I’ve finished rebuilding the Aende and am eventually satisfied with it, detailed pics to follow. When researching some of the old school Paramount and Aende riders suggested by Brian i stumbled on some great old shots, not all are of Aende riders but i think they are quality.

Reg Harris. He won the world amateur sprint title in 1947, two Olympic silver medals in 1948, and the professional title in 1949, 1950, 1951 and 1954. He also surprised many with a comeback more than 20 years later, winning a British title in 1974 at the age of 54.

So in the FGFS world there has been a lot of talk of 14mm axles and peg friendly hubs.

The Grime boys have been talking about it for a very long time and The Grime Thread over at Trick Track has been filled with people asking when the much talked about Sadio Hubs will drop.

And after a long wait, diagnosis
here they are.

These things look legit. They look like they can take a beating, information pills
and to prove that…The Grimes all ride on them.

They come with the standard 10mm axle but you can buy a 14mm convertor.

Along with the hubs being dropped today, Sadio came out with their Lockring and cogs as well.
