It is worth noting that Gnutti declined from it's halcyon heights as the name change approached. In my earliest days in cycling, i.e. 1972ish, Gnutti labeled hubs and miscellany appeared on some pretty basic and marginal bikes. It wasn't until some years later I realized that they had made good stuff once-upon-a-time!
