    Wrong hub?

    I just had a set of wheels built for a Misfit Dissent with a DtSwiss 240s hub. Is this http://www.bikeparts.com/search_resu...p?id=BPC361373 the wrong SS hub for my application?

    I'm a little worried.

    Also the spacing between the dropouts is way bigger than the width of this hub. What do I use to make it fit?
    The distance between the Misfit dropouts is like 6.2 inches or in that area.

    Got some pictures of the problem?

    Says hub is 135mm... Frame should also be 135mm.

    That hub is a great choice, should be perfect for this.

    But 6.2" is way too far between the dropouts. Do you have the sliding dropout plates on the inner side of the frame?

    6.2" is more than 150mm which is now standard for DH bikes.
    everything sucks but my vacuum cleaner.

    I find it difficult to believe Misfit speced their XC 29er with 150mm dropouts (BTW 6.2 is 157.49 mm). I'm not saying that's what you were saying; I not quite sure what you were saying. Anyway, there's no mention of oversize dropouts on the Misfit web site and they sell rebranded Novatec hubs for 135mm spacing. Obviously the answer is to call Misfit and ask them WTF. Good luck
    Just one more rep and I get the toaster!

    6.2 inches between the INSIDE of the dropouts?
    something wrong there. maybe measuring between the FRAME, and not the sliders?

    that's the right hub, but all misfits run 135mm hubs.
    so either the frame's busted or you're measuring something incorrectly.
    this a used frame?

    I'm glad I have you guys. What would I do without you. I was driving myself crazy thinking about it, how dumb of me.

    So I didn't have the dropouts mounted at all, I just eyed it up without them there not thinking. That was between the frame.

    With the dropouts in place it measures 5 3/8.

    Heres some pics.





    Thanks again!

    Do you mean 'quick release' when you said 'through axle'? If you don't know to measure your drop out width with the drop outs on the bike and you don't know the right name for a quick release then I'm worried about you building a bike. I sound like a jerk, but I'm being honest.

    If you do mean quick release then Shimano XTs are the way to go. There are more expensive and lighter ones and none of them will clamp as tightly or last as long.

    Djriddle I can see your concern but I was told by the wheel builder I need a thru bolt (axle?) It is the 240s single speed centerlock hub with 10mm thru axle. No quick release.

    Oh, OK. Go with what the manufacturer of the hub makes (not 'does') for that hub then like the previous post indicated.

    Actually Alex, I told him to do what you said, or are we both wrong? I'm so confused...

    Your both right this http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/206...ear-Skewer.htm is what your talking about.
    Makes sense to go with Dt Swiss since they made the hub.

    Im going to have the shop do the hard stuff and I will do the easier stuff. Cant be too bad.
