    Single Speed Wheelset or Hubs

    Hi,

    I'm looking at getting a good set of wheels for my NS Majesty but can't really find what I'm after.

    What wheelsets or hubs are out there that have the following.
    1. Come with, or can fit a 12T 1/8" driver.
    2. 36 spokes in the rear. Happy with 32 in the front.
    3. 15mm thru axle in the front.
    4. 6 bolt brake disc to go on the back.
    5. No disc brake bolts/holes on the front.

    All that's out there seems to be suited for 20mm axles in the front and usually a 10T driver on the back.

    I though about getting a set made up with a Hope Pro 2 Trials hub on the back, however they don't seem to have a matching front Hub without the disc brake holes (maybe I'm being fussy, but I'd like to keep both front and back wheels the same brands if possible).

    What else is out there and where is the best place to purchase these kinds of wheels? It seems pretty limited to your standard trail/all mountain wheels.

    Cheers
    Benno

    Well I'm not sure of an MTB hubs that don't have disc brake holes in them and I don't believe there are any BMX front hubs that will swap out to 15mm thru axle... you could check out profile racing... they aren't cheap!

    as for the 10t driver, you could easily order a 12t driver and just swap it out. I have eastern hubs on my old dj bike and I have 9, 10, 11 and 12 tooth drivers, as I was trying to play around with the gear ratio i liked the best.

    good luck

    Thanks.
    I ended up ordering some Halo Chaos DJ Wheels and a kit to convert the front wheel to a 15mm T/A.
    The rear has an 11T driver which I think will do.
    Only 32 spokes in the back, however they sound like they're pretty strong, so no big deal.
