Bolt on, ideally 32h and black.
Surly ultra new or similar.
There wasn't much else out there than Surly Ultra New or Paul Word Fixed when I was looking for one. I went for the Ultra New and it's been nice. Good luck with your search!
edit - you might be able to use a trial bike rear hub, eg https://www.trial-bikes.com/en/echo-splined-rear-disc-hub-p-538082.html
Somebody was selling some Phils recently if you search for them.
Or I've used a flipped regular hub and bolted the cog onto the disc brake side if you're happy to not run a brake at the rear
Yeah I had considered the route as per velosolo of converting a freehub rear, might be more economical than Surly, but as @cgg says they are solid..
sorry to bump but i am looking for the same.. and interested in that trial hub option ─ has anyone tried this / does it have any downsides? can't see any 36h ones, are they all 32h?
I've got one of those screw on 6 bolt adapters and its brilliant! Bit of loctite and it's never come loose got a spare available if intrested
interesting - I think ideally I would like to keep option to run brake as well but will think about it
I got sorted via a Surly, so am looking to shift the stock Genesis 135mm SS disc wheelset - which I ran fixed at times with a lockring and Loctite. So if that's of any interest then let me know, can sell for the cost of the hubs alone.
hey very interested! it is actually for my Genesis Day One, so I don't have to lug the Alfine round all the time. what would that be cost wise?
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
