Longtime GRAVELBIKE supporter Brandon Hunziker, owner of BikeHubStore.com, recently opened a new wholesale business, BWP Distribution LLC. Among the brands BWP carries are Kinlin, H Plus Son, Pacenti, Sapim, Enduro, and Wheelsmith. BWP also serves as the distributor for Bitex hubs in the United States, and maintains a large and growing inventory of their road, disc, and now fatbike hubs. “We just took delivery of a fiber laser marking machine,” Brandon said, “and will soon offer dealers the option of having their own logos etched onto just about any hub we carry.” Dealers may apply for an account by visiting BikeWheelParts.com.
You can read GRAVELBIKE’s review of the BHS hubs by here. We’re happy to report that the BHS hubs are still rolling smoothly after thousands of miles on paved and unpaved roads.
Here’s some exciting news from the folks at the Rouge Roubaix:

Each builder will bring a team of 4 to race in this years Rouge Roubaix. One slot on each Builder Team is up for grabs, and we want you to come ride with us! We are looking for a motivated, experienced racer to join each team.
