    Surly "New" Disc Hubs

    I'm using them on my Niner. Mine are solid axle but they can be converted to quick release I'm told.
    There are three kinds of people: those of us that are good at math and those that are not.

    Depends on how much you want to spend, and if you want a cassette of freewheel style. For cheap stuff, the Nashbar cassette hub is 36 hole, comes as a bolt on, but can be easily converted to QR. I'm not sure what else is out there, but would think the King, Hadley etc. would come in 36 hole.

    Well, if you can use a freehub MTB 135mm spacing 36 hole QR rear hub, a Hope XC hub is hard to beat for the price. Ran one on a SS for a while.

    I'm looking for a singlespeed-specific hub, so i guess that means
    freewheel style. I'm interested in the kind that build out less dished
    than cassette hubs. I'm weak on the lingo; feel free to correct me.

    I don't mind spending a bit of money. Just want it to last
    forever. Don't know enough to have confidence in anything by
    Nashbar. Also, i'd rather not buy something, only to have to convert
    it to what i wanted in the first place.

    King makes a 36-hole, SS-specific, disk hub, but no QR.

    Hadley makes a 36-hole, disk hub, but not SS-specific.

    DT makes an SS-specific, disk hub, with a QR option, but no 36-hole.

    The Surley New Disk hub is SS-specific, disk, but no QR for the
    36-hole version.

    Of course, my info could easily be flawed. (Can't even find a website
    for Hadley.) It's starting to look like i may have to go with either a
    non-QR hub or a cassette hub. The 36-hole and disk factors are
    absolute deal breakers for me.

    Phil Wood offers a 36 hole, disc, singlespeed hub. Doesn't
    get much more bombproof than Phil. It isn't qr, but just needs
    allens for removal.

    White Industries offers their non-eccentric eno in a disc/36h variety.

    Why do you absolutely need 36 holes? I remember a study once that tested 32 vs. 36 hole wheels and they found the 32 to actually be stronger. Just FYI. I have not really looked for such a hub, so can't help that much. Also, about the freewheel vs. cassette hub: Singlespeed hubs can be either. The Surly, Spot, Paul are freewheel type, and the King, Hadley and Nashbar (On-One) are cassette type. I guess the wording "cassette type" is a little misleading, as you cannot mount a cassette on these hubs, as they are singlespeed specific. Do a search on the forum here and you will find plenty of arguements for both types.

    Kings are available with QR instead of fun bolts. I have both.

    I've just made a wheel with the Nashbar hub. LINK
    Who has the parts to convert it to QR?

    Paul Disk Word Hub - although I'm confused by the wording (no pun intended) on the website...

    http://www.paulcomp.com/diskword.html

    "The Disk Word comes bolt-on only and uses the same axle assembly as its non-disk counterpart, so replacement parts, if ever needed, are a snap."

    Then above, they show a conversion kit for q-r for $24...

    Woodman sells a Q/R conversion for their SS Disc hub, which is the same as the Nashbar unit. The Q/R axle costs about $15.00 and is easy to exchange. I have instructions for the swap if anyone is interested. Did mine about 6 months ago and it is bombproof.
