I departed from the Nuovo Record group 'cause I felt like it. This C-Record high-flange is one of the prettiest hubs ever made. Unfortunately, they also had a reputation for breaking the flanges, and they also came along when Shimano was successfully promoting cassette hubs. They aren't seen often, and the combination on this bike (24-hole front, 32-hole rear) is probably pretty rare, and that combination on a recumbent is possibly unique to this bike. The skewer is Shimano since I widened the rear hub to 135mm for extra wheel strength.
