    160mm x 15mm hub???

    I'm doing some research for my new bike for next year and one of the frames I'm considering uses a hub that's a 160mm width with a 15mm axle.

    I've been looking and the only hub I've come across is White Industries. Not many reviews on their hubs, so I'm kind of concerned. I've checked BTI and some websites, but have come up with nothing. I've also tried to contact the mfg, but haven't recieved any replies.

    Thanks.

    sure its not 165x15? anyways, Hadley's standard sizes are 10-12-15mm axles with 135-150-165mm spacing (any combo), however they also make odd spacing sizes too. The thing to consider is how far the disk rotor mount needs to be vs. the dropout, and for that you should be asking the bike maker.

    Canfield...

    It's for a Canfield Formula1. And according to their website it's a 160mm hub. From what I've read it doesn't come with the hub only the axle and it doesn't give any options or suggestions. I've been trying to contact them, but have had no luck. Thanks.

    BTW - The Shiver is doing great. I might try a heavier oil (10wt), as my rebound is only running about 4 turns out from full slow so it may need a bit more damping control.

    hmm thats odd they wouldnt elaborate. The Super8 had a 160mm hub but that was with a 14mm axle.

    Maybe give a shout on Ridemonkey, think there are a few Canfield owners there

    Yeah, ask "Toshi" at ridemonkey. He has a F1 and knows the Canfield Bros.
    Here's a link to his thread on ridemonkey.com
