Howdy,

I recently picked up two pair of Pelissier Professional hubs. One pair are high flange and one pair are low flange. Both are gold anodized and cup and cone. The hubs appear to be similar to ones I recall seeing in a 1976 or so in a STC catalogue. (STC was a French bicycle marketing group. STC=Societe Tri Colur, iIrc.) The hubs have a have those stickers on the barrels that say "Pelissier Professional" and "Made In France," similar to the stickers on Maillard 700 hubs and Peugeot Trophy. The barrels themselves are stamped with "Pelissier" and "Dural Forged." The dustcaps are black/charcoal gray (reminding me of another French hub--but I can't remeber which one). The quick releases are labelled "P1001" and all metal (except for nylon in threads of the bolt).

They are pretty nice hubs. I would rate their quality between my Maillard "Peugot Trophy" hubs and Normandy Professional Hubs. They look very similar to the Maillards.

Anyone know anything about these hubs or about Pelissier at this time? Were they just another Maillard brandname that Maillard bought or was Pelissier still an independent operation in 1975 or so when these were made?

Any information would be appreciated.
