    SS cassette disc hubs; options becoming more limited???

    I had to put my SS build on hold but I'm back to getting this thing built up. I already have my hubs (Novatec front disc, Nashbar SS rear cassette disc) but there may be a possibility of getting the 2 rims I want for cheap. I thought that I could get the rims, get rid of the rear hub I have and get a different/nicer hub as the problem is the rims are both 32H while my rear hub is 36 and I would have to take the rims as a pair.

    So I go out on the internet looking for the 32h Novatec SS rear disc hub that matches my front.....can't find one. Then I look for the Woodman, On-One and Nashbar versions.....can't find them or only 36 hole available. I start looking at the manufacturer websites for Surly, Spot, DT Swiss, etc........only uber-expensive brands like Chris King still seem to make this configuration.

    What they h*ll happened in the last year? There was a plethora of options out there for SS-specific cassette disc hubs, but now there only seems to be a few high-end options. Am I not looking in the right places or did everyone jump on the bandwagon only to fall off recently? Places that I know used to carry Novatec don't seem to anymore.

    If anyone knows where to find a Novatec SS-specific cassette rear disc hub (so I would have a nice matching wheelset), I would appreciate a heads up! Thanks!

    Does Hope count as uber-expensive?

    Here is a very similar one with 32H and better engagement.

    I'm almost sure that one is the same as the Novatec.

    If you hurry, the Iro hubs are selling for cheap now They are the Formula version.

    And Universacycles is got the Woodmans on stock, but they are $120, though.
