    36 spoke hub, 190/197mm dropouts - does it exist??

    I'm trying to build a very strong wheelset. having more than 32 spokes would be a big benefit there, however i can't find any hubs that support this. They are all 32 or 28.

    48 spoke would be even better!!

    help!

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    I emailed them, and you're right Onyx will get me a hub ... it's expensive. $600 something for the 36 hole version, versus already steep high-$400's for the stock 32hole.

    So I suppose the question is answered; but I'm trying to decide if this is worth it. once I get into the 800-1000 per wheel; does that open me up to some other solution that would offer more strength

    For your reference, my options right now look like
    1. Hope pro 4 fatsno 32h + sun ringle duroc 29 40mm 32h ~$450 built, no tire)
    2. Onyx 36h + the same duroc, in 36 hole (nearly $900 built, no tire)


    Discussing those on another thread; is option #3 the most effective way to get more durability in that price range.

    If anyone else comes back with less expensive hub options it would certainly be awesome

    So are the benifits of four additional spokes worth $450.00?

    Drop bikehubstore.com an email (or call) and see if they can get you a FB190 in 36h

    Thanks for the suggestion; due to my specific needs (ultra-bomber setup for safety & durability hauling a ~400lb system weight), I'm going to stay away from direct importing. But alibaba is quite a resource if you have the right skills.
