    Can't find a hub for this beastly thing...

    Trying to build a 9 n 9 Durango Bike Works from some years back. I can't find a 160mm rear hub w/ a 20mm through axle. Any suggestions?? Any through axle tandem hubs?? thanks for the help.

    By the way, Park City's new DJ park is being built and it's gonna be sickter. We started on the pro line yesterday, looks big. I'll post pics soon.

    20mm in the rear and 160?? Call the manufacture. they should have something or they would have not built it.

    Try calling the hub manufacturers since the bike company is out of business, that'd be my only guess...

    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    I'm sure that they went out of business because noone could build wheels for their frames.

    good luck finding one though.

    You'll need to have reducers made for those dropouts to use with a smaller axle (like a Hadley 15mm). I believe Turner does that. Hadley is your best bet.

    He might not need reducers at the frame (maybe to get it to 150mm width but not diameter). My hadley hub is a 20mm with reducers for a 15mm bolt but I think you can use a full 20mm bolt.

    Fortunately this is not my bike. I'm just trying to hook a brother up, he's gonna sell it. This frame/ fork could be yours for $1100usd. I'm sure the der. hanger will be easy to come by too.

    Nice looking bike though. A 20mm x 160mm rear hub would be quite a find. Interesting choice by the manufacturer. Bet it is pretty stiff when all built up.

    Not that anyone cares......but, Razor Rock has a hub for this bike. Too bad they are out of biz too. I was able to find one though.

    the biggest hub they make is 160x12, so I don't think it would work with the 15mm adapters (at least that's what their catalog said)

    Get that hub and have your local machine shop cut you some 20mm X 12mm X ?mm spacers. Don't forget to cut them length wise so they will pinch the axel with the frame.

    I was just wondering what looks flexy to you? Is it the Profile bottom bracket that they use as a main pivot, maybe the gusseted rear triangle, maybe it's the fact that it uses a 20mm rear axle??? Flexy? Not as far as single pivots go, thanks for the reply though.
