Subject: [CR]Maillard 700 Hub question--Whitworth


I took the Meral in yesterday to have the fender stays cut and swap out free-wheels since I didn't have a Atom freee wheel tool. In switching the freewheel, we had to disassemble the hub partly because of the whacky dustcaps that are integrated into the cones. The strange thing: the locknuts appeared to be a weird size--Whitworth, according to renown Chicago bike guy Moss Jacobs. Could this be right? Could these be OEM or, perhaps, the fellow from whom I bought the hubs rebuilt them this way?

Your thoughts.
