    Non-disc SS Freehub Recommendations

    I'm looking for a dishless[ish] freehub (Shimano 9-spline) single speed rear hub. The only one that I can find is the Chris King Classic SS Rear Hub but I think it's too expensive. Are there any other options?

    TIA

    idk, maybe Hope SS/Trials?
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    I'm looking at those too, but they're 6-bolt disc. I'm really looking for a non-disc ss freehub.

    I'd have to look at the flange measurements from center, but I would think that if you want a dishless wheel with a freehub rather than a freewheel having the accommodation for the disc makes it dishless.

    I might look for an older version of the Hope SS hub, I saw one not too long ago on the 'bay, but it's probably not listed anymore. I have seen Phil and WI hubs non disc, but they're freewheel.

    In any case, good luck.

    How about a SS freewheel on a threaded fixie hub? That's how my Inbred is setup. Surly hubs are cheap and bombproof.

    won't an asymmetric rim get it done?
    Rigid SS 29er
    SS 29+
    Fat Lefty
    SS cyclocross
    Full Sus 29er (Yuck)

    Stop asking how much it weighs and just go ride it.

    I'm looking specifically for a dishless[ish] non-disc freehub. The CK hub linked is the only one I can find, and obviously it's very expensive...

    That CK may well be the only one besides another boutique hub brand. You may be able to find other options in 130 spacing where disc may not be as prevalent. I don't know that you could find a 130 and get longer end caps either though. Perhaps look at a center lock disc SS hub like the DT Swiss, which is still spendy. Other than that, used or a lucky NOS at the LBS. Good luck.

    Does Tune still make one?

    I don't think any other non-disc SS freehub hubs exist. That said, most SS disc hubs are dishless. Maybe look at the DT Swiss which used a centerlock mount which will be less noticeable.

    Hadley SS, close to, if not dishless, cheaper than King by a fair bit, just got a wheelset setup with one, really like, high POE. Adjustable preload bearings like CK so no slop like Hope. BTW I have a Hope 12x142 in use that I broke the axle after 6 months(and I'm not the only one), stock is aluminum, awesome customer support offered to send me a steel one to replace it took only a week, rebuilt it, should be bombproof now. There's a section internally from the needle bearing to a sealed bearing with a sharp edge broke right there. Think that's why they don't sell 12x142 anymore, the bolt on versions are just about solid in that area.

    Here's the needle bearing side, clean snap (I'm a clyde so YMMV)
