    Suggestions for 20mm hub? (xpost downhill)

    I'm looking for suggestions for a hubset or wheelset that will have a 20mm front hub and QR rear. Cheap is good. Disc obviously.

    I had a wheelset built on WTB Lazer Lites, but after riding the bike, I realize I want a dula crown fork. For this, I need a fron wheel with a 20mm hub.

    So, any suggestions for good CHEAP 20mm hubs?

    Atomlab Pimplite hubs. Light weight, stiff, very quick engaging 6 pawl/60-click. Low cost.

    The rear hub needs an available adapter, 12mm through-axle to 10mm through-axle, to run in QR dropouts.

    The wheel sets aren't very light, made to be downhill durable, the rims are over 600g. I'd build with other lighter rims for trail use.

    White Industries has a nice, stout 20mm thru front hub. You could always lace that up to a Stans Flow EX rim. That would be a rigid wheel with a great ride quality due to the wider rim.
    Check out www.zencyclery.com for fully customizable, handbuilt wheels.

    If cheap is what your looking for, how about these:
    Sette DH 20mm 32 Hole Hub at Price Point
    I'm using a few of them on different wheelsets, not issue and role smooth...BUT they are not the lightest.
