Cinelli Titanium Hubset ?

These hubs were on ebay labeled as rare "Cinelli Titanium Hubset" (for Campagnolo, 32 spokes; Titanium body, freehub...Aluminum flanges, axles).

Is anyone familiar these? Cinelli or something else with Cinelli decals?

UPDATE: Thanks to Brant for leaving a comment saying that he thought they were early Hope hubs. Some searching verifies that, this from a 1996 catalog, "Hope Ti hub":

I invite you to contribute by sending in photographs of your Cinelli bike, illustrations, personal stories, and articles about Cinelli bikes and components.

Thanks for stopping by.

I can be contacted at


  1. They look like early Hope hubs to me.

  2. @brant:that's it! Added a photo from a 1996 catalog.
