    Lefty Straight Pull Hub?

    Bit of a long shot, but does anybody know of a Lefty hub that uses straight pull spokes in 24h?!
    I have some Easton carbon wheels but want to put them on the Dale so need a straight pull hub.
    Any suggestions much appreciated!

    The Extralite HyperLefty comes to mind, as a bonus, it's one of the lightest Lefty hub on the market.

    That does look nice but doesn't seem to be much else on the market. Extralite may be the one then!

    Why does your rim care if the hub is straight pull or not?

    You won't need a straight pull hub unless you're trying to re-use your spokes. It will be unlikely that you can get a straight pull 24h hub that will have the same dimensions as your easton hub, so spoke re-use is probably not going to happen.

    Circus Monkey do a 24h left hub in alloy and alloy/carbon.

    The Easton rims use a double threaded nipple so the spoke has to be able to turn in the hub to tension them up. Its the rim/nipple design which means I have to use a straight pull hub.

    Reynolds has a 24 hole straight pull hub also. I don't know if they sell them separately though.

    at $270 you'd be close to making a wheel from a Project 321 hub, DT swiss super comps and a WTB I23 rim.

    Mine was $305 built up

    I did see that but I have not seen any Reynolds ones separately. Maybe its time to sell the Easton's and buy something else!

    Honestly, the only reason I'd keep the Eastons is if they were their carbon rims. Easton carbon has near magic properties.

    They are carbon EC90's hence wanting to keep them!
