    Laser etched - if you like stealth, then you'll have to have the hub anodized again

    Through QBP. Not sure which shops have them as they were limited to 1 qty per order.

    135mm made to rear disc standard - will fit Enabler without mods, and White Bros. etc.. with spacer for rotor or caliper.

    Funnily enough, the Hope fatbike hubs were made available here in the USA before the UK market

    I have 2 sets of the "regular" hubs....& I 100% agree with your comment. Very hard to justify going with something else (except for the loudness). They are built well, Hope has awesome customer service, they are fairly light weight, convert to a bunch of different axles, & even come in pretty colors lol.

    If I ever end up with a frame that needs a wider rear hub, this is the one I'll be getting.

    The loudness just reminds you to keep pedaling!

    Yes given the quality bling and function one receives i would agree however they have become my #2 choice mainly due to US produced Hadley hubs and the very same quality and price mirrors Hope.

    The Hadleys seem nice, and locally made is good, but:
    - No website?
    - No weights
    - $550 a pair is $163 more than Hope @ MSRP, $200 more @ street price
    - Backordered til?

    ummm they don't just seem nice they are nice just like Hope, CK so all 3 are very comparable in this area.
    True no website just retailers that distribute their products.
    The weights can be found from said retailers but i'll add them here for the rear hub anyway.

    Not picking on you, but those are 135mm rear hubs. Looks like the only way to get their 170mm hub is the Fatback branded one? And only available as a set, it appears.

    Oh no worries over here i'm just presenting info or in this case options even if currently BO in black but the quality and price is there for someone if they choose this route.

    hell i may end up with hope if mine is BO for too long so it's good either way for me.

    Fatback/Hadley hubs are available individually - but only as a special order, which will take a number of months waiting for the next production batch from Hadley. Speedway orders stock in pairs and only sells pairs from stock.
    Fatbikes are much more fun than they should be allowed to be!

    Got to put my hands on the new SnoHubs last night. Pretty light, lighter than hadley, also cheaper. Freehub was very loud, there was noticeable bearing drag and slight chunkiness on both front and rear bearings when spun. Maybe this will go away after some use? Hub flange spacing is different so a different length spoke will be needed. Don't really like the raised edges they had to put in the center of the hub shell.

    weights and price are near idential +/- $5 if thats a concern but whats most important is quality no matter which hub one chooses. I have decided to go with CK and pretend the bill is ummmmm just for laughs.

    Hadley (Fatback) snow hubs are 282 grams for the front (135) and 435 for the rear (170). They are heavier and more expensive than Hope. But, they are quite nice, and US made.
