A typical wheel has metal hub, tension spokes a metal carbon fiber which holds pneumatic rubber . Hub. hub is center part a bicycle It consists an axle. and a shell. The shell typically two machined flanges to spokes can attached. Hub can be with press-in or free or, in case of designs, the may be to a hub shell.
