new project (wheel)

Postby concept64 » Wed Jan 26, 2011 12:38 am

here is my new project ....
produce a carbon front hub
My goal and achieve a wheel hub aesthetically beautiful and reliable
the cops in the carbon-carbon axis surely as hybrid bearings

AX rim in 42

radius (if I find .... Pillar of Ti X-TRA)

Wow, that hub is gorgeus.

hi many thanks
This is the first step I weighed just to see
it remains to install the part that keeps the bearing is the radius
this piece is the most important because it keeps the ball bearings in the same axis as the nipples

on this picture you can see the room

thanks

This is far from perfect, the sock is not the right carbon diameter which therefore one or two folds (I order the right size and fabric type carbon son) across its should be good after I'll make tests with people outside my circle which will give me an objective opinion and realistic
A beautiful and reliable carbon hubs I paret feasible
I do not know if I have my technical levels the tests I Diron my intuition tell me that my product is my reliable that is not enough

I'm back
the carbon body is finished you can see from this video
rest up after the aluminum rings on which the shelves will be fixed
estimated weight will be 43gr light model will be tested in the second time in 40gr
The first model will be tested by a specialist (wheel craft)

it is finished ...

Here now and the implementation of a front wheel hubs carbon road
For this project, my goal was to make a reliable product and aesthetics.

For the next reliable, I decided to work on the following:

✓ shelving with head right spokes (for a maximum clamping)
✓ The alignment of the head spokes that are in the axis of ball bearings
✓ The positioning of the bearings and the spokes is most eccentric possible (for maximum stiffness)
✓ Mounting hybrid bearings (ceramic balls and steel cage)
✓ Drilling with the passage of spokes pointing in the axis of the assembly, which allows a diameter adjusted, better maintenance of the spokes as well as a contact with the aluminum rings and head spokes.

To validate these technical skills, I asked the company RAR
http://www.rouesartisanales.com/
to test the hubs and I will not fail to publish the report


For the second objective (aesthetics), I'll let you see the video of the hubs
