This Week's Peekaboo

So this weeks peekaboo comes from my time at Paris Roubaix. So often we see tyres switched out and for good reason as many brands don't produce a dedicated tyre and generally nothing bigger than a 25mm (notable exceptions go to Continental & Vittoria).

So this spot is connected to the tyres in that its a pair of hubs from French wheel manufacturer Corima. They look like a well disguised set of Shimano hubs from the end cap which seals off the bearings. Hey I could be wrong, but it looks like the Osaka boys got the nod when extra toughness was required for the big stones on the Astana machines.
