Really great hubs. And you get two for less than the cost of one Campy rear.
Super-smooth sealed bearings. Beefy flanges and body. Great to build high-quality high-mileage wheels.
Also fully repairable and rebuildable. All it takes are a couple of hex wrenches.

Miche Racing Box Hubs
These are well made easily serviceable hubs of reasonable weight. Ease of dismantling and adjustment is very similar to the much cherished (but no longer produced) Campagnolo oversized axle Record/Chorus/Centaur silver alloy hubs. And just for these features I would recommend them. They lack the ball and cone bearing system of the Campagnolo hubs but the sealed industrial bearings used are smooth and would appear to last a reasonably long time (and, of course, they can be replaced when the time comes). They are also very reasonably priced given their quality of manufacture - buy a pair before the manufacturers realise they're pricing them too cheaply!

Smooth comfortable hubs
I like the look of these and the red skewers. I had them handbuilt by someone onto Mavic rims and have been impressed by the build and hub. They run very smooth and very quiet and have needed no attention since they have been in use.
I'm very happy with these.

Smooth, Good Price Nice Product
good for hand build rims, Very smooth Good quality!

good deal on a campy compatible hubset
Since it's difficult to find a campy hubset outside of their factory wheelsets lately, it's good to have a quality campy compatible offering that not an expensive boutique hub, especially because Shimano, by contrast, offers good value Ultegra and 105 hubs.
These Miche hubs are smooth and solid and have a small set screw for adjusting the axle clearance. Flanges are thick so keep that in mind for your build--spoke elbows get lots of support. The brushed aluminum finish is surprisingly good quality for the price. FYI, the center bore label is a sticker that peels off easily leaving more of that deep matt finish visible.

Excellent value for money hubs
Reliable and robust, with good weather seal and readily available bearings that can be easily replaced when they eventually do wear!
09 June 2015
excellent product for the price
The hubs arrived on time and in the condition I expected. As always the description of the product was accurate and the service excellent as always. Wiggle make shopping on line a doddle and on the one occation I returned an article ( my fault not theirs ) it was trouble free.

Good price and good quality
The price was certainly right. I was looking for a 36 hole hubset to build some lightweight touring wheels. They built up nicely, holes were smooth and large enough for the spokes. Bearings are smooth. After building the wheels I went on a 400 mile tour with my 50 lb loaded bike and my 200 lb body. No issues at all. After the tour, the bearing are still smooth. So I'm pleased with these hubs.

light and fast
The hubs are nice and light and roll forever. They are similar to campies hubs at a discount price.
08 August 2014
Very, very nice hubs
For this price you´ll hardly get better hubs. The hubs are not superlight but are sturdy and are great for touring / commuting.
The polished finish is excellent.

I have several wheel sets using these hubs. They have a nice expensive look to them and have amazing smooth running bearings. The free wheel is not too loud and engages smartly. I have yet to adjust them at all, with several thousand miles covered. They compare well against my other Ambrosio, Mavic and Hope hubs.
10 June 2013
Look good and are ok - but not real quality
They're ok for me on a set of Mavic pro rims. They came in lighter than stated. 430g on my kitchen scales.
I think the shimano 105 has more quality about them. If you rotate the free hub of the Miche very slowly you can feel and hear the abrasive feel of the ratchet. Also, if you look at the milling on the free hub it's all a bit unfinished and rounded where it meets the hub flange. Not a problem, just a statement of quality. I thought I'd build a light set of training wheels and if they last longer and are a success then great. Else I'll get a shimano hub as they are pretty bomb proof for a training wheel.

very nice product
This is a very nice set of hubs. they are well made and stylish.
27 October 2012
Great value for money
I run a set of these on DTSwiss rims, they have run thousands of miles in all weathers and are still as smooth as the day they first turned. A fast lightweight Raceing hub at a fraction of the cost of the other Italian alternative, also great to have sealed bearings which are easily replaced with a puller and if you wish you can obtain ceramic if you have deep pockets although I don't see the point of customising an already highly developed product.
20 July 2012
These hubs roll as good as my higher priced hubs & they look great.
12 July 2012
Excellent valu for money, Italian made hubs, look good on modern or retro wheelsets.
04 June 2011
You get what you pay for
I rely heavily on Wiggle's customer review system, therefore I feel urged to express how I feel about these hubs after 10months of riding.
Purchased August 2010, I had the rear handbuilt to a DT Swiss RR 585 rim with Aerolite spokes.
Good looking hubs and value for money, but I regret building them up. Bearings are smooth, sealed and spin for ages, but the freehub body is too soft and after 6months of riding (1,300m) it gave up! The pawl springs inside broke, therefore the ratchet wouldn't engage, cassette wouldn't lock and I couldn't ride home. Miche kindly serviced the freehub body and replaced with a Campagnolo version (as I upgraded Campy 11) which has been better (due to Campag step design!) but I'm still not convinced how strong it is. I wish I could replace the freehub body alone as the hub is ok.
Additional to this, the QR skewers are poor. The cam mechanism isn't well designed/manufactured and I found my rear wheel sliding from it's dropouts fairly regularly, no matter how tight I'm clamped it. This made riding difficult and un-nerving, especially when ascending and applying power through the crankset. I've since replaced QR skewers with Hope and had no problems.
Like I said, value for money. But, I'm now looking to replace hubs with a steel bodied freehub, i just hope I don't need to replace my Aerolites!

Just great hubs!
Built up several wheelsets with the campagnolo version of these hubs.
These are the cheapest hubs with campagnolo freewheel that I could find. But they definitely neither look nor feel cheap.
I use these hubs for road racing and cyclocross and haven`t yet had any problems with them. They really had to endure some abuse but still run perfectly smooth.
These hubs are definitely a keeper.
Highly recommended if you are looking for an affordable hub set!

I was looking for a good set of 36 H hubs to build up a classic wheelset. The hubs deliver good value for money.
25 April 2011
Excellent hub for custom wheel, mine were mounted on Slasa Delgado Cross silver rims and the results is great.
Wires must be longerr for the front hub (29.4cm) than for the back hub (29.2)
23 February 2011
These are surprisingly nice hubs for the money. Nice smooth bearings out of the box. Good looking hubs and quick releases too.
The ease of replacement of the bearings are a big plus for me, as these are destined to be a set of training wheels for me.
These are great value for the money.
23 November 2010
These are a great price hub (especially for Campag compatible hubs), which I paired with Open Pro rims. Haven't had a single issue, and find them smooth and well made. The red skewers I find a bit ostentatious, but the brand stickers on the hubs just peel off. There is nothing fancy in the looks department, but they roll well and are a great price.

Miche Racing Box Hubs
Bearings roll well when broken in, not as light as some hubsets, but when you take into account the low price, these are a STEAL.
I built these up with Mavic Open Pro rims, DT swiss nipples/spokes and they made up a relatively light wheelset for a fraction of the price of Ksyriums etc... So far I have ridden $1000 km+ on them couldn't be happier.
17 January 2010
Do not buy expensive hubs........not when this kind of quality is offered for this price from Miche. Don't let the name or the price put you off, these are real top quality hubs. Yeh all right not the lightest in the world, but they certainly aren't heavy.
I had thought about hope Pro3, but with their current price I went for these Miche hubs. Got to say that I'm really pleased with my decision; great bearings, great finish.
10 September 2009
Decent value for money
These are mint looking hubs. The red anodised skewers and bearing lockring look great when built up. The bearings run very smoothly.
The only downside really is the weight - they are quite heavy but then for the money you're paying for them, who cares?
Use them to build up a mint looking set of training wheels!
08 August 2009
Just finished building my new wheels on these. Can't wait for some nice weather to take them out, but still they seem to spin real nice. I set the wheel spinning after I put the sprockets on just to check them out and I got bored and dropped the bike back on the floor long before it even slowed down.

Great Value Hubs
Used for training, these 36 hole hubs have wonderful riding characteristics, and so far have been free of problems.
22 June 2009
I just built up wheels with Miche RG2 hubs. The rear hub has play. I used a 2mm hex wrench to loosen the bolt on the red piece. I tightened the red piece to reduce the play. There is still some play and now the preload is too tight. If I reduce the preload, then I get even more play. Any ideas? I really don't want to rebuild this wheel :-(
Front Hub: O.L.D=100mm width from center to left flange=32 width from center to right flange=32 left flange spoke hole diameter=40mm right flange spoke hole diameter=40mm spoke hole diameter 2.5mm (not on spec sheet) Rear Hub: O.L.D.=130mm width from center to left flange=37.2 width from center to right flange=14.6 left flange spoke hole diameter=46mm right flange spoke hole diameter=46mm spoke hole diameter 2.5mm (not on spec sheet)
BTW, I've read it's not recommended to reuse spokes with different hubs, but I've done it a number of times without any problems. Maybe not ideal, but hey I'm not a race team and it just worked! Still!
Additional information about gjash could not be loaded.
I would advise that this procedure is very unwise unless your replacing with the exact same hub and even then removing the hub and releasing the tension on the spokes and then putting them under tension again could seriously endanger their strength. It is also impossible to measure accurately the flange size (45mm ish) I would recommend starting again with new spokes.
