    24 hole rear hubs ?

    Im looking at replacing the rear hub in my Easton EA 90's with a
    Hope or King but haven't seen any with a 24 hole count .
    Is there such a hub on the market ?

    Might be a good idea to upgrade to a higher spoke count for your rear hub, and then you might not need as heavy a rim.

    Just replacing the hub is false economy. You are better off building a whole new wheel--with 32 spokes.

    Nobody makes a 6 bolt disc 24 hole hub. Too bad too, because those Easton wheels would be an amazing setup if that rear hub had and kind of strength.

    24h rear hubs.

    Actually there are one or two hubs on the market which will work:

    1. I've read, but not confirmed, that Tune makes a rear 24h hub. You can search for that one.

    2. Extralite makes a rear 24h hub, the HyperRear2, quite expensive though.

    hi
    I've found also this:
    E Thirteen XCX+ 6-Bolt Rear Disc Hub

    you can find it here:
    E Thirteen XCX+ 6-Bolt Rear Disc Hub | Chain Reaction Cycles

    Someone told some problems with the rear one (you should find a 3D in this forum).
    Cheers

    Presently , there are no issues with my setup as far as reliability or weight .
    I had a King on my last bike and I miss the bling and the noise and thats all
    I am looking for for my current bike .
    Ive found that White Brothers makes a 24 hole rear disc hub but Im looking for red and there colours are silver and black .
    There is a hub recall but mine is not within the serial numbers affected .

    4slomo - The Easton rim is not heavy at all .
    Extralites .... ya just a wee expensive although the Hypercamber2 has a
    really different look .

    If your rim continues to work for you, great! Hope you never break a spoke, though, as you'll probably be walking...

    White industries just started offering a full range of anodized colors. They look nice (pics anyway).

    Eaton spokes are not propitiatory as you may think .
    My LBS was able to replace one last season with another make .
    Only thing is it was black and didnt match the rest .
    No biggie .

    The issue is not spoke availability. It is the low spoke count.
    If/when a spoke does break the wheel is compromised much more than a 32 spoke wheel, and low spoke count wheels tend to be more flexy/less stable in the first place.
    If you are OK with that, finding replacement rims or hubs is harder, which is the problem the OP has.
