    Rear Hub / Axle advice please???

    Hi can anyone help.

    I have a Be One Woodbumble plus and i'm researching a new rear wheel set up.

    But i'm confused. The gap between rear drop offs (if you can call them that as its a bolt) is 183mm. But most hubs i've seen such as Hope Pro II have measurement 135mm or 150mm.

    Are the two related or am i looking at the wrong measurement?

    Apologies for the poor explanation. I'm sure through replies etc the real problem will come out.

    Cheers

    looks like a dh bike. probaby a 150mm but im not sure. 150 is the hub length, not the axle length.

    Found more info

    Thanks for your help. I did a bit more digging.

    When i tightened the rear bolt to its normal tension i found that its a 165mm hub that's needed. I've had a look around and Sun-Ringle and Hadley are the only makers of a 165mm hub. I called Hope and they've never made one.

    If anyone knows of any manufacturers who do a 165mm hub with 12mm bolt please let me know. Also if anyone has one for sale i'll be keen to discuss.

    cheers

    Don't pay much attention to dh stuff, but poked around a bit and see this http://www.bikeparts.com/search_resu...p?id=BPC101534

    Much better posted in the dh forum, tho...
