Re: Fake Bullseye Hubs

I am just curious to know how many threads are going to be started on this subject??? These days they make all kinds of knock off stuff. Purses, car parts, jewelry, bike parts,shoes,clothes,watches, and much more. Where there is money to be made people are going to try and get it. If you don't like the product then don't buy it, and move on...

Re: Fake Bullseye Hubs

Here are some of the red flags on the counterfeit/fake hubs: Partial list.

1)Spoke holes on flanges, The ID is too large and has improper countersinking dimensions.

2)The anodizing is way off, To light and shiney and wrong color hues. If you look close at any
of the fake hubs, you can also easily spot the anodizing is chipped on the area between where the center and the flange meet. We have used the same anodizer for years and this is not our ano.
The chipping is from improper assembly by the counterfeiters as well as improper dimensions proportionally on both the hub and the flange. We use a design specific press for our hubs and have for years. The fakes were not assembled properly.

3)The machining on the flange, near the center is rough cut, there was no finish pass on the CNC lathe when these were made.

4) The set screws are the wrong size. We use .125 sets and the fake use .250 or so.

5) The bearings are not a brand we ever used. They are also not installed correctly, They stick out
due to the bad machining and assembly parameters being way off.

6) The threads on the freewheel side flange has different lead in measurements. Different from
any of the years we used CNC's to manufacture them.

7)The decals are a poor digitally printed knock-off, They have easy to spot inconsistent cut patterns on the right aside and the font is off. The spacing, the font, the out line. Everything is way off. We use the same graphics people from 1984 and they are made the same way. Our decals are perfect, exact style that we have always used.

8)The axles are made from rolled steel, our are constructed from heat treated chromoly 4130 that has been centerless ground. The threads on the counterfeits is loose where as our is tight and the material is wrong.
