White Industries H3 Hub

Click on the image to enlarge it.
White Industries is one of the few remaining bicycle component manufactures proudly manufacturing their products here in the U.S.A. Since the inception of White Industries in 1978, their CNC components have been designed, engineered and manufactured in Northern California.

If you are lacing up a new set of wheels the H3 hub is a perfect choice. The hub shell design is a high/low flange which allows for a more even and better spoke tension with a hub spaced to 130mm. The hub design maximizes aerodynamic efficiency. Unique to the H3 is their titanium freehub body in a choice of Shimano or Campy configurations. White Industries feel titanium is the best choice in the freewheel application since it is nearly as light as aluminum and has the equivalent strength to many forms of steel.

Craftsman tools were made famous by Sears. The hand tools offer a life time warranty and don't require a receipt. While all Craftsman tools are not made in the USA, many still are. Look for the made in USA emblem or U.S.A. on the tools themselves. Craftsman tools are available at Sears, K-mart and a few other select outlets.
