The short lived Cinelli Bivalent hub system

Bicycle Guide magazine article about Bivalent hubs by John Derven

There were two styles issued by Cinelli; the first had a chromed steel center barrel with aluminum hub flanges. The later version had an all aluminum hub body.
The Bivalent hub set “… came out in the early 1960s, probably 1961 or 62. The change-over to one-piece shells seems likely in 1967”
