    Hubs for Redline Monocog

    I was thinking of building some new wheels for my Monocog, but the spacing is like 120mm Would it be that big of a deal to shove a 135mm hub in there? I was thinking of getting Mavic Crosslands and running them with regular tubes.

    Any comments on the subject

    It's actually 110mm...

    ...and don't try it. You might be able to cram it in there, but you will end up breaking your frame.

    Any BMX hub will fit. King makes a nice one that costs megabucks, but there are dozens of alternatives. Check out Primo, their stuff is bling. Danscomp sells lots of cool BMX gear.

    If your monocog is a steel version it could fit, I've seen it done on a steel monocog, that a local bike shoper works at, the aluminum version would be a definate no go though. If you were worried about running a rear disc brake you don't need to be dismayed, Atom lab and
    DMR make an addapter which allowes the use of disc brakes on a bmx flip/flop wheel, it screws onto the non-drive side of the flip/flop, just make sure to get the right size, bmx hubs have a bigger and a smaller size, if you will be using a 16 or bigger FW get the small size, 14or 15t size freewheel get the bigger size

    Yeah, I'm going to toss one of those Mavic wheels in there when I work next. I think it should work, I could always cold set it a little.

    Just use a 110mm spaced BMX hub. Dan's Comp sells the Poverty BMX flipflop hubset for $45. Sealed bearings, great deal.
