In the attached image, you can see a measure of 32 and 36 mm being mentioned for the length of a bike hub. What are these measurements? I have searched and found that axle, flange or even spoke holes are given as part of the specs for hubs, but I cannot guess what these numbers are refering to, since they are either too small or too big to be referring to any of them.

    Try asking the question direct to the seller? Could be they're just box-movers and not a bicycle shop ? Could you link to the page itself please ?

  • The numbers could refer to spline length of the freehub body that the cassette slips on to. Technically the 32 and 36 are erroneous here, too since the measurement of a 7 speed freehub's splines equal 31mm, while an 8,9,10 speed freehub's splines are 35mm. See this post: bicycles.stackexchange.com/questions/77222/…

When there is choice between numbers 32 and 36 with bicycle hubs, they are spoke hole counts. This could be either a bug in the online store software or that the company has no idea what they are selling.

  • Thanks for your response! This is most likely the case. I took this from a retail store that sells mostly clothes and furniture, so they probably have no idea what they're selling.

  • The actual seller is Fahrrad.de/Brügelmann, Internetstores is their umbrella brand

  • Interesting. Brügelmann's own website gets this right so it could be bug somewhere. Or deliberate marketing strategy, making things a bit broken and showing an inflated "normal price" to make it feel cheap even when it's not.
