    Single speed disc hubs/wheels/axle nuts

    *noob*

    What hub or wheel can I get that I can also use discs and axle nuts? (and isn't retardedly expensive)

    I would rather buy a complete wheel, if possible..

    You can use Shimano hubs and swap the QR axle out for a bolt-on. Atomlab makes bolt on hubs. Hope makes hubs that can use bolts. Halo makes hubs that can be converted to bolt-on. The Azonic hub can use a step-down thru-axle with nutted ends. Any thru-axle hub can use a nutted axle. There are lots of them out there.

    Not much DJ experience, but...

    +1 on the Hope SS rear. Really solid, sound good, 48pt engagement, great price, and can be converted to bolt very easily (just buy the hope conversion kit).

    You can buy wheelsets from Hope too, but I'm not sure if they do an SS wheelset...

    I run the Nashbar SS per sittingduck's suggestion. I think I bought mine for $40, but if you google "nashbar promo code", you can usually find a good one worth 10 or 15% off.

    I'll be upgrading the driver w an Odyssey as soon as my current unit goes south.
