DDD 030 – It Spinneth Forward

A little known fact is that front hubs are directional.  Granted the consequences wouldn’t be quite as dire as mounting a rear hub backward, but nevertheless, front hubs/wheels do have a left and a right.  Valuable information when mounting a directional tire.

While on your bike, look down at the label on the hub shell (Chris King, Shimano, DT Swiss, etc).  It should be readable. If it’s upside down, flip that wheel around.
