    Looking for Lefty hub

    I tried to find a 6 bolt , 32 spoke Lefty hub on EBay but all I could find is a 24 spoke model .
    Would it be ok to use it or is the 32 spoke model superior ?

    It's for a Rush .

    The 24 and 32 holes are the same hub, just different drilling. But with the 24 holes, you have to lace it to a 24 holes rim, harder to find/less options and the resulting wheel will be lighter but less strong/stiff. Whether or not a 24 spoke wheel is okay for you depends how you ride, your weight, trails you ride...

    That's what I was thinking .
    The 24 may as well be a 4 hole , brake rotor mount one .
    Who need's that

    No wonder there are no bids on it .

    I think you can still get 4 bolts rotors from Hope, don't expect to find one in just any shop though but from Hope directly. They either have som laying around or can make you one. But anyway, Lefty hubs are not too popular on ebay, you can find a complete Lefty wheel more easily. People don't swap a Lefty hub for something else, they upgrade the rest of the front wheel.

    Found that link once, never ordered from there, just had the LBS order one but let us know if you do order one and it works out.
