Things to Know About Bike Hubs

The hub is the central and most important part of your bicycle which connects to the wheel’s rim through spokes and via which axle is fitted. It enables the wheel to spin freely on two sets of bearings. Bikes have two wheels one at the front and the other at the back. Likewise, they do have two hubs specific for the front and rear wheels. The front bike hub simply helps the wheel to spin while the rear hub is a little more complex and allows you to coast or freewheel.

Front Hubs

A bicycle front hub usually consists of a metal body with a set of bearings at each end. Many road hubs and MTB will also feature disc mounts for disc brake rotors.Shimano, Sram, Specialized, Mavic, and DT Swiss are the leading manufacturers of bicycle parts and accessories.

Rear Hubs

A replacement or upgraded bike wheel hub gives your bike a huge performance edge with better quality bearings and lighter weight. However, the type of hub you choose depends on many factors such as axle dimensions, bike type, riding style, and budget. Besides these factors, there are a number of things that you should take into account when choosing a new hub such as bearing type, materials, axle type, rims, and disc mount standard.
