    Yep, it is a 165MM. I just got a DT-Swiss 440 FR hub laced to an ATOMLAB DHR rim. It cost me $475.00!! So I know FOR SURE that it's a 165MM. Here is a pic:

    Yea, thats one of the only hub choices I could find and I couldnt bring myself to spend $400+ on a hub. The WTB works fine but I wanted to up to 36 spokes. How you like that fork on that bike? I was looking at either getting a new frame or a new fork (same one you have) and I cant deside. Thanks for confirmation!

    Doesn't Hadley make a hub in a 165mm spacing/thru-axle? If they do, that'd be my choice. I thought that I remember seeing one on a frame with the same spacing before. Give them a call @ 909-946-6780.

    Yes, in fact the 04 SGS World Cup has that hub, I think.

    I love the Shiver on my bike! At first, this frame frustrated me with the strange sizes. But now since I have built it up so much, it is pretty much bullet proof. The Shiver cost almost as much as the original price of the bike. It is a fantastic fork.

    My bike is 100% "point and shoot" now. It will take just about everything I give it. The only thing I have not upgraded is the seat post. For how much I have dropped on this bike, I could have got another one but I love that my IH is so "stealth" as I call it. Nobody can tell what it is. They always ask.

    Eventually, I may get a new frame?!?! But right now I am just really enjoying my bike. I have like 4 grand into it now.

    Back to the DT-Swiss hub, I just wish it was louder... I know that it is kinda strange to want that but i do. However, the LBS guy said that it will get louder the more I ride it. The Hadley was LOUD. But the DT-Swiss was a better hub (according to reviews I read and people I respect opinions.)
