[Schlumpf Questions] Hub numbers

Sorry for the multiple posts on related subjects, but I figured people using the search facility in the future might find things easier.

Does anyone know how many Schlumpf hubs are out there? Or what is the highest serial number that anyone here has? I have 000159, which I think is a Mark II hub, but if anyone knows when/what number things changed over at I’d be interested. Any info on what the changes were would probably also be good.


I think the recalled hubs were recycled with new internal bits but using the old hub casings. Apparently they were really expensive. So I don’t think the serial numbers are an accurate reflection of whether it’s a 1st gen or 2nd gen hub.
