There are so many styles of "straight pull" bicycle hub from the late 19th and very early 20th centuries I wanted to start a thread dedicated to discussing and identifying those various styles.

The first and one of the most popular / "common" straight pull hubs is known as "porcupine" style by the Columbia company.

The next is another Columbia style but uses a traditional ball-end style spoke that mounts directly in the hub shell without the "lugs'

Another relatively common style of hub is often attributed to Victor / Spaulding but I have also heard from @corbettclassics that Barnes used the same style. Possibly a third party mfg?

Here’s another that I believe is from the Cleveland company.

Uses a style of ball end spoke with a distinct wedge.
