    ROL Hubs

    Ok...This is mostly out of sheer curiosity so forgive me but what can any of you tell me about the hubs ROL uses on their wheelsets?

    I bought a set of D'Huez' for my girlfriend for $300 about two months ago from a kid desperate for cash to fix his car and she absolutely loves them. Only had about 500 or so miles when I got them and are in great shape. My curious nature wants to know who makes them and if anyone has "upgraded" them with ceramics?

    Talk to me here guys.....whatta know and what are your opinions of them?

    I have a set of Race SLs...

    AFAIK, the hubs are Taiwan sourced, but built to ROL's spec. They look like were based on DT hubs.
    IMO, they don't need ceramics. Mine are as smooth rolling as my White Industries hubs...

    i love my ROL wheels and would buy another set, no questions asked.

    I've heard they were Taiwanese....just didn't know who exactly built them.....again, mostly curious.

    I doubt any hub truly needs ceramics but was mostly curious if anyone had swapped bearings and their results.

    The girlfriend LOVES her ROL's and when baby is happy, I'm happy.
