Hub brush things

Posted on
  • When I were a lad in the 1980's riding my Mongoose California, I had some brush like things on the hub that kept them nice and shiny and clean. They I bought some Skyways.

    So, my question is, can you still buy these brush things for hubs, and if so, where? Ta.

  • I may have 1 or 2. Can check later.

  • Just put a small leather band with press-stud fastening loosely round the hub - that'll keep the dirt from building up.

  • The only bikes I've seen with bits dangling there on the hubs have hubs that are fookin' dirty!

  • Just slip a livestrong band on there before you build the wheel.

  • I have a LIVEWRONG.

    Yep I try and use one of girlfriend hairbands but forgot last time.

  • Yep I try and use one of girlfriend cockring but forgot to take it off last time.

    Long time tommy - do you still need a Dremel?

  • Ha!

    Dammit sorted me out for a dremel ta.

  • wheels already built!!!
    Cheers Pipwish, lemme know. Like the leather option too.
    Mind you, the hail blasted them pretty clean last night.
    Anyone on here the chap I rode down Hackey Road with
    I was on a blue Bridgestone with a white front , red rear wheel.

  • I have never understood that, just looks cheap.

    You want clean hubs so you put a piece of material that gets steadily tattier and covers up the hub around them?

    Just rub them down with a cloth every two weeks or so.

  • I use multi-coloured pipe cleaners.
