    Default Best value rear hub 142x12

    Looking at purchasing a secondhand set of stans flow ex wheels but will need to change the rear hub.
    Firstly not sure if it's worth it or wait for a set that has a suitable hub.
    Secondly what is a decent hub for the money etc?

    Hope aren't bugdet, but a lot better than hubs costing a lot more. Adaptable to various configurations, go for ever, and sound fantastic.

    Either way, given last weeks advice on wheels from os, it would need to be a good deal. 80 for a rebuild, plus spokes, plus the cost of a hub.
    Sure you don't just need end caps?

    Just re-read. Wager is off

    I'm now going with current hub being QR and non convertible.

    Hmmm does sound expensive looking into it..
    The rear hub is a single speed so could buy front complete with hope hub and rear as rim only.

    Has to be Hope, bulletproof, ride and forget, spares probably the easiest available of any hub and great price for what you get.

    Is it actually single speed, or a standard Shimano freehub with a single speed kit. My SS has a kit, I can pull it off and install a cassette in less than 5 minutes.

    It's just a spacer kit with standard lock ring.
