Subject: [CR]1960: A Hub Oddity

Muchachos y Muchachas:

I recently obtained a Campagnolo high flange pista hub set that I dated (wi th the lock nuts) to 1960. There is also no "Record" stamp to be found on them. Odd thing is the spoke drilling: A 20H front and a 24H rear. And now for the questions: - For what racing application would such a count be desirable? - Am I to assume that these were a specialty (non-factory) drilling pattern ? These are the first I've seen in this combination. - What rims might have been used at the time? (ie What rims were available in said pattern in 1960?) - What rims (tubular or clincher) in a simple silver might be available in said drilling today?

Baaam...Baaam...Baaam...BAM! BAM! (Boom, boom, Boom, boom)
