    Dedicated SS Hubs for Boost Spacing?

    Anybody making these yet? If not, what are you guys running on your SS boost builds?

    I use a 135mm bolt on hub and just crank on the nuts really hard until it's snug and tight. Make sure not to make them too tight or else you'll strip the threads.

    Curious: why?

    A regular hub with spacers and a SS cog should be fine. Dedicated SS hubs are cool and all, but the benefits are marginal. My next hub is going to be a Hadley- reasonable price, lots of axle options, high POE, titanium freehub, impecible reputation, good customer service depite their lack of online presence.

    I have dedicated SS Hadley's and I know they will be producing a Boost version soon. Hadley's have the most REAL solid axle options,not cheep end caps. My SS first SS hub went from a 135 bolt-on to a 142x12 TA. The first dedicated 142x12 that I know of. My old QR front hub I converted to a 100x9 TA and it's still one one of my bikes.
    As far as why a dedicated SS. Less dish=stronger wheel. Personally I don't ever plan to convert my SS bikes to geared but I understand that those who want to multi-use the wheels or go back to gears would want to use geared hubs with extra spacers.

    Agree...either is fine but there are benefits with a SS only hub.
