    28 hole non-disc hub options?

    I'm looking for a 28 hule non-disc hub for my singlespeed. Something that's fairly light and not king or hugi prices. I don't care if it is a singlespeed specific hub or a standard cassette type hub. Do I have any options? Thanks.

    dunno about the SS hubs (those only come in a 32H version), but the normal ones cost around a 100 bucks on ebay, if i remember correctly

    I havea single speed as well and i'm not sure how long an american classic could hold up to the task of a single speed hub on the rear...

    that's another issue. but light + inexpensive + great quality is hard to find.

    but why shouldnt the AMC rear hub hold up when used on a single speed?

    Single speeds put alot of stress on hubs/drivetrain. Its vital to have quality parts on a SS drivetrain if you plan on using it besides riding around town.

    I have an AC front disc hub, so i have no quarrels with AC or anything but their rear hubs have some to be desired from what i've read.

    I did a search and check out Spookykinkajou 's post.
    American Classic Wheels?

    For a SS, as bad as it sounds i'd only want a King/Paul/Eno freewheel/etc. If i'm putting all my energy in going up a steep hill or hammering on a flat section, my rear hub better not slip.

    eBay is a pretty good source for am classic hubs, but unfortunatly they only come in a 32 hole version. Currently I've been using an older model xtr hub, and have begun searching for 28 hole models. Again, unfortunatly, the only 28 hole xtr hubs I can find run around 170 bucks, more than I want to spend. The search continues.

    Most economical is to run 105SC or Ultegra 600 hubs and just replace the rear axle and add an extra 5mm of spacers between the locknuts.

    The original Mavic Crossmax hubs are 28 but use straightpull spokes..
    they are still available fro Mavic.
    Titanium or Bust !
