    Cheap 20mm front hub

    Im going to be ordering a new fork for my stp and i am looking for a new front hub for a 20mm thru axel fork. I dont want to spend much more than 80dollars if i can get away with it because im a cheap bastard. Will a hope hub work well or should i look at something else. Chainreaction cycles seems to have a good selection. Any ideas?

    Front hubs aren't nearly as important as the rear hubs. The Halo/Diatech hubs are great. Simple and strong. As long as the front hub uses sealed cartridge bearings, you really can't go wrong.

    Cheapest on QBP I found was the DMR revolver. Still going strong after a whole season and it looks pimp... chrome and black.

    What Will said. Zoke, Dimension, etc. are all good hubs. If it's sealed it's good. A F hub is nothing but a sleeve with bearings inside.

    I have a Dimension 20mm t/a. Weighs about 50 grams more than a King and cost me about 55 bucks. Big giant sealed bearings.

    Atomlab front hubs are in your price range I think. They also looks pimp. I have an axiom one which is basically a rebadged formula hub, cheap as hell, and it rolls very nicely.

    Thanks guys. It seems like the only thing that jacks up the price is the name and the weight of the hub
