T.F. Blumfield Ltd flip-flop road hub, made in England.
I have just cleaned up a front wheel on a 1955 Carlton Courette and found the front hub to he TF Blumfield Ltd Duralite which is basically the front version of the picture above. What a delightful and elegant hub having the characteristics of a much higher flange but more in keeping for a 26×1 1/4″ rim.
What a delight! Post a pic if you have one.
this is a lovely little hub and suits the Carlton perfectly
The bike is totally original, one family owned since new until I bought it for my wife this year. Will be doing a full sympathetic restoration on this one, the paint and detailing is amazing for a 63 year old bike and just needs some love, care and attention to get her back to a standard I can live with. Oh and it will also be getting a wicker shopping basket, we live in Italy and this will be my wifes market day bike, dolci vita!
That’s lovely, I’m sure it’ll be a stunner when you’re done with it. Thanks for sharing it!
