    Any 6bolt Saint comp. rearhubs avab. yet??

    Does anybody know if theres a 6bolt disk rearhub out there which is Saint rearmech compatible.
    The Norco Shore comes specced with a Axiom rearhub, Hayes and a Saint rearmech
    but I cant seem to find a rearhub on its own.
    Really want to try a Saint rearmech as my current is due for replacemant anyway, but i dont wanna give up my Gustav rearbrake.
    Guess I could get a Saint rearhub with the Saint 160mm rotor , but the braketrack seems kinda narrow compared to my Gustav disk.
    Any comment/ideas warmly welcome.
    Cheers

    I have a Saint rear mech, and a hadley hub with a 10mm thru-axle that will work once I can get my hands on a Saint axle (Shimano package it with their hub). The hadley axle won't thread into the Saint mech (different pitch or reverse thread maybe). However, that axle is proving tough to get a hold of.

    DT/Hugi is making one.

    but it is not 6bolt, but Saint centerlock.

    I'm not sure what you're referring to, but my Hadley hub is 6 bolt.

    Edit: I just realized you were talking about the hub specced on the Norco that the original poster mentioned.

    people were making Saint compatible hubs before Saint even existed. Its just a 10mm through axle hub, you dont need the whole groupo.

    i would contact Hadley. They do everything in-house so they would the best bet to help you on that. There are no axel kits that i'm aware of.

    There is an adapter from Problem solver that lets you use 6 bolt on center lock hubs
    Go to your lbs and give them part number br0380 brom quality bike products
