These hi-lo hubs are obviously akin to the famous breed of Swiss Moolie cows,bred with legs shorter on one side to facilitate climbing up to the high mountain pastures in the summer. There were clockwise and anticlockwise breeds. Art Link,San Antonio,TX,USA

Charles!

You can't imagine why such a hub was built?

It's only logical when you realize that this hub (the particular one discovered by Aldo Ross IIRC) was originally a track hub!? As it says on the CR page devoted to this rare item (http://www.classicrendezvous.com/Rarest/Hi-Lo_frt.htm):

" The very rare Campagnolo Hi-Lo FRONT hub.

?(The hi lo front hub was originally designed for the velodrome. You just had to

make sure to put the wheel in correctly, Hi side to the track outside-) "

Ha! I would have thought this was obvious!?

Some place on this or my other computer I have a photo of a front Campagnolo High Flange Low flange opposite side. Why such a hub was built is beyond me. No a track hub if I recall. Charles Nighbor Still in rainly Walnut Creek CA
