    Sandman Hoggar Ti and 170mm rear hub

    I have a Sandman Hoggar Ti. I want to build another wheelset but can't seem to source a 165mm rear hub from anywhere (other than the modified Shimano one from Sandman).

    1. Does anyone still make a 165mm rear hub?
    2. Could I shoehorn a 170mm Hope Fatsno hub in there? What negatives could this produce?

    Any experience on these things appreciated.
    Cheers

    No negatives, a 170mm hub fits in all current and future Sandman bikes. In fact, they're standard now.

    Then they need to update their website... and perhaps keep current customers up to date with changes like this via email.
    Thanks for the info though.

    One more question caminoloco...

    Do you know what the widest rim/tire combo is that i can run on the rear of the Hoggar Ti frame? Can I run a Big Fat Larry? I ask because I'm wanting to build a 2nd wheelset for beach and sand based adventures. The narrower Trialtech rims are great on single track but not so great in deep soft sand.

    Cheers

    Fatmuz. I also own a Hoggar Ti. Martin Campoy rider for Sandman wrote back to me on this same topic, he suggests 80 mm rims with a 3.8" tire, he said that the big fat Larry might rub against the frame.
    I am building a second set with a 82mm Rolling Darryl and will use a Husker Du, Nate or Larry tire but 3.8" not the 4.8 or higher.

    Sandman Hoggar Ti and 170mm rear hub

    Wow. So it does work, good to know. I wonder if I could fit a Specialized Ground Control 4.6. These look beefiier than BFL's and should cost less!
    Thanks for sharing, sometimes its all about Trial and error until you get it right!
    Have you tried the Surly Nates what do u think about this one?
