    Strengths:    - durable
    - cheap


    Weaknesses:    - heavy
    - a little bit on the loud side (as every Campagnolo hub)


    Bottom Line:   
    Rear Veloce hub is one of the most durable components I had on my bikes ever. It refuses to break. Yes, it is heavy and loud but on the other hand it is cheap and maintenance free. Put it on and forget about it. Top pick for strong training wheel or wheel for winter rides. If you are not looking for cool looking or weight weenie part you can't go wrong with it. If you are get yourself a Record.

    Bottom Line:   
    This is a a review for the 2007 Centaur rear hub. This is a great hub, super smooth bearings, good seals, nice freehub ratchet sound, quick engagement, great polished finish, includes skewer.

    Strengths:    They are cheap and they work

    Weaknesses:    cheesy plastic bits on skewers, polish isn't up to usual Campy standards but hey would have to charge more if they were, very loud when freewheeling

    Bottom Line:   
    It is hard to go wrong with Campy these days. Everything seems to work great, even their low end stuff. When I went from 7 speed friction to 9 speed index shifting I purchased Veloce down tube shifters, rear derailleur, chain, and a $200 set of Veloce wheels that came with Mavic aero rims and a 13-26 cluster. It is amazing how much quality you can get in low end parts these days! The only annoying thing about these hubs are that they are very noisy when freewheeling. Of course all Campy hubs share this trait.

    Strengths:    Cheap, Looks OK

    Weaknesses:    Noisy freewheel, Corrosion

    Bottom Line:   
    Although the hubs work adequately, the rear is really badly corroded, pieces are just flaking off it. It's on the bike which I ride to work on every day so it sees some pretty bad weather and salty roads in the winter. I think that I will have to replace it soon as there is not much left outside the spoke holes. I will probably go for Royce or Hope as these have a reputation for being bomb proof.

    Strengths:    Durability

    Weaknesses:    Weight

    Bottom Line:   
    After two years and 6-7K miles, I never had to touch it or grease it yet. I've changed cassettes once and there's no sign of notching on the freewheel. It's a bit noisier than the Record hub.
    It's mated to a Ambrosio rim. I got a set of Speeddream wheels for racing, so the Veloce set is now used for training.

    Veloce or chorus rear hub

    Should I get the cheaper veloce or more expensive chorus? Would they last about the same?Read More »

    Veloce 10 rear hub

    I've got a Veloce rig (couldnt't guess that from the title, could you?) that seems to have some play in the rear hub. It's only got around 800 miles on it so there shouldn't be any significant wear on the bearings... Is there some way to adjust these? (Probably cartridge bearings.)Read More »
