polishing deburrs the sharp edges, gets rid of lather and mill lines and prepares the surface for anodizing. a polished surface is way brighter after ano than a "mill finish" even if it does dull it a bit.

We have an array of measuring tools in action throughout the manufacture process. The vernier calipers are for on-the-fly checking of things. We use air gauges for bearing bore measurements and micrometers for the axles after they are through-ground at the bearing saddles.

RatHunter83 our silver hubs and the endcaps/freehub on our road system are certainly clear anodized but the process does dull the polish.

Thanks for the Kind words! We're extremely proud of the things we make. To address a few comments i see here, i'd like to reassure "birdman2447" that our 7075 spokes have the same tensile strength of a 14g stainless spoke... that is one of the engineering criteria that determined their diameters. the spokes enter the hub at a tangental angle from the opposing spoke to keep the wheel straight as possible if there is a break. With sticks, rocks and acts of god, a bent derailleur hanger causing the mech to shift into spokes is still the greatest nemesis to the system but chances are the wheel is fine while your hanger is not when this happens. We also offer classic versions of our hubs in many spoke counts for those who want to use traditional j-bend spokes. Also for those who want their hub quieter you can remove the endcap, slide the freehub out (all by hand) and load up the drive ring and pawls with Dumonde Tech Freehub oil. The more oil, the quiter! we have a machinist who runs his BONE DRY to make them as loud as possible also. To each their own!
