On the left you can see a standard hub stud, and on the right you can see the new hub stud from Tino Sacchi.
You can see the obvious differences:
- An actual shoulder for the wheel rim. This provides a much more solid base for the wheel rim to sit on the stud, rather than being sat on threads, as per original.
- The head of the stud is thicker. This will make it easier to install into the hub. Anyone who has replaced hub studs will know how difficult it can be with standard studs as the head is so thin, so it is difficult to get the purchase required.
