Vallie Components

Vallie Components - Find out more

The internet is awash with the lastest from #interbike2013,  fuck that noise for now. Here is something from Vancouver from some one that didn't have to pay $20, 000 to get some exposure. Lyle Vallie is a one man operation designing and manufacturing burly and obsessively well though out hubs, cogs and frames. The frames appear to be personal projects for now, hopefully the will become available.

His ground up designed hubs use a ISO disc mount for the cog to eliminate stripped threads and feature a burly as fuck 15mm hollow female axle running on Japanese 6902 bearings.

He also does amazinly nerdy frame modifications, repairs. Like say, you need a disc mount on you IRO that plays well with your Chub hub and gives you clearance for your rotor and a workable chain line -yeah he can do that too.

real deal
