    Help please to find the best deal on an Extralite Hyperrear 2 hub

    I have the spokes and the rim for the last part of my Yeti ASR5 Carbon (old school 26") build. Now I need a hub.

    I would dearly love to find a slightly used one, but brand new for the right price works too. I need:

    Extralite HyperRear 2 (1 would work too)
    12x142
    XD driver
    28 spokes
    Straight pull

    Thanks Guys!

    You might be out of luck. I checked a couple of online places and couldn't find what you wanted. Directly from Extralite is 426 EUR with the "cheaper" bearings, 574 EUR with ceramics. (That's the non-VAT price too.)

    I can see why used makes sense.

    Why not consider other brands? I think DT Swiss makes the 350 hubs in 28h straight-pull as well.

    Because the 350 is more than 100g heavier than the Extralite:

    My spokes (Sapim SuperSpokes) were special ordered (well it was a bit of an accident) from R2Bike a while back when I did the front wheel, and they're spec'd for the Extralite hub dimensions. Plus I have the HyperLefty front hub already.

    I would avoid Extralite like the plague for reasons I've explained before (here) and consider the 2018 Carbon-Ti X-Hub SP with 56T Ratchet Ring instead. You can buy new spokes for the price difference.
