General Information
Combined both loose ball bearings and cartridge bearings, the Stage Racing hub was designed for easy service and adjustment with standard tools.  Bearing races were made from polished surgical steel. Jim Merz: "The hub bodies were forged on the Stage Racing Hubs. Normal Specialized hubs were cast. Because forging is stronger the spoke flanges could be made with a smaller diameter. The bodies were also highly polished. The bearings used for this hub had the same dimensions as the normal hubs, but the inner race was ground so it could be removed easily. The races were made from very high quality steel and had a mirror like finish. They were specially made for Suntour and were very expensive. I am pretty sure these hubs were never used on any complete bike we sold, and were quite rare."
