    Novatec disc cassette hub ($105):
    https://www.webcyclery.com/.docs/pro...t_details.html

    I just made my own out of a Shimano DX cassette hub respaced to 135mm.
    $59 for the front/rear hubs and 4 cogs. I had an extra qr axle and spacers laying around,
    but those would only cost another $15-$20. The result seems pretty decent, but I don't
    have any durability info yet.

    Respaced to 135mm. You end up with a 45mm chainline. Has held up on the streets of NYC for about a year so far.

    not using the disc adapter, but i imagine it threads on in place of the BMX side (this hub takes Mtb on one side and BMX on the other)
