General Information
Also appeared as Peugeot Trophy and Spidel.  Top quality French hubs.  The spacing could get weird.  The front hubs often measured less than the standard 100mm.  The 120mm (5-speed) rears often measured out 124mm.  Gotta love the French.  Weight given is both hubs with skewers

EDIT:  Some additional information.  While pursuing another issue, I learned from an informed CR lister why the rear hubs were spaced 124mm for the "standard" five speed hub.  It seems that in combination with certain frames, some brands of 5-speed freewheels simply would not fit.  So many French builders compensated by spacing the rear at 122mm and spacing the hub to 124mm.  A simple, elegant solution.  Gotta love the French still applies.
