    Gusset, Halo, Atomlab Aircorp (if you can stretch your budget a bit), DMR Revolver, new XT, Formula, Funn, Ringle, Woodman.

    All except for the XT are sealed bearing. All have decent engagement and are decently solid.

    I would think he means 36 hole

    I would go with a Hope pro2, as long as you dont mind VERY loud hubs, its perfect for most uses except perhaps ultra-weight-weenie xc whippet types

    Ahhhh. Yeah, that would make sense.

    Pro II is a bit over the 120 mark though.

    The WTB LaserDisc Lite's not bad... comes in 36 x 135 too

    The new Halo 6-drive looks promising as well.

    A Hope Pro 2 rear hub is about $200 new, if you looking for $120 like metioned the Aircorps are pretty good hubs my buddy has had a Atomlab wheelset all year with the AC hubs.. Can you get a Azonic Outlaw Hub?

    a loud one for 120 USD .. check the used hubs you might find something .. Formula hubs, well actualy all the hubs that use the KK interns are horrible .. stay away from them .. well i had bad experience with ... i will recommend you idk ... stay between Hope,Hadley,CK,Dt swiss, but idk if they make the size you need .. check used part for 120 you wont find any quality at your LBS

    just put a credit card on the seatstays rubbing against the spokes if you want it to be loud.

    In which case, a Hope is what you need. I've had two- XC and Bulb, and they have been louder than any other hub I've come across.

    looks like a hope xc or an older model hope. i could be wrong though. from what i hear they're good, just a bit heavier than the pro 2. i have the pro2 hubs and they rock. that one looks like a good deal though

    XC? will this hold up? Plus im using a grimeca 6 bolt rotor and a 9 speed cassette? This wont give me any problems right?

    Won't work. Hope just barely offsets their bolt holes so that nobody else's rotors work.

    Yes... it's fine with your current rotor and cassette.
