    Shimano should work just fine. My Hope hub came with one, though.

    Just make sure that you get a lockring that will fit your spacers. When i first converted, i thought i was good to go. My 11t lockring let the spacers slide right past it. I needed a 12t.

    I use older Shimano Hyperglide lockrings. They're probably a bit overkill, but they're wide enough to hold spacers on and won't ever fail.
