    hubset dilemma

    i need 190/135 hubs for my wheelbuild. there really aren't allot of options when it come to 190mm hubs. i'm contemplating waiting for more brands to hit the market.
    does anyone have any ideas when we can expect more hubs. i keep seeing more bikes where's the hubs?

    If you add it up there are about as many 190 hubs as there are 170's out there. Pretty much more than a person needs other than an ultra cheap version.

    that's my point. the market doesn't have a sub 400gm model or an ultra cheap model.

    I remember the days when we had 3 170mm hubs, quit being so picky and go ride your bike

    Oh and a rear Borealis hub comes in a 339 grams or so and I'm sure the Chinese will be putting out cheap hubs that you can't get parts for soon.

    I saw these while looking at the Sarma fork

    Sarma Fat Bike Hubs | Sarma USA

    190 mm 375 g

    I believe the 135mm front is front disc spacing, too, FYI.

    hubset dilemma

    Agreed on the limited selection. I was looking for a 150mm front for bluto build and went with salsa. I also want another 190mm 150mm for a 29+ wheel build but few options and all quite expensive. I think we just need to wait a few years and there will be more selection and prices will come down.
