This Week’s Peekaboo

P3173P3175P3177

So this weeks peekaboo comes from my time at Paris Roubaix. So often we see tyres switched out and for good reason as many brands don’t produce a dedicated tyre and generally nothing bigger than a 25mm (notable exceptions go to Continental & Vittoria).

So this spot is connected to the tyres in that its a pair of hubs from French wheel manufacturer Corima. They look like a well disguised set of Shimano hubs from the end cap which seals off the bearings. Hey I could be wrong, but it looks like the Osaka boys got the nod when extra toughness was required for the big stones on the Astana machines.
