I'm starting a buildup of a cx bike using a mix of existing and new parts.
I have a full set of 105 9spd parts for the drivetrain, but wanted discs for the brakes as this is going to be my all-weather daily grinder here in Chicago. I've had a taste of using discs in the rain/snow/slop that is winter here and they are a serious improvment over anything rim related.
The frame is going to be a Redline Conquest Pro (I'll throw cantis on it when I want to race) which gives me the flexibilty of using discs or cantis.
My problem is finding a rear 130 mm disc hub. Anyone have any thoughts or pointers on where to find one, and if there is an outside shot of getting a 36h version for use with my open pros?
phil wood makes a 130mm, 36h disc hub, and they even attach phil wood prices to it. ($400)
that's all that comes to mind right now.

hehe...for that money I might as well just buy the FSA RD 460 wheelset; cheaper than that hub.
Weird that I can find links for a Hope XC disc hub in 130mm for shops in the UK, but nothing in the states. I would think that there'd be a reasonably priced hub out there as I can't be the only one looking to do this...

I'm looking as well for a 130mm rear disc hub. Anyone else have any suggestions???

Last year Colorado Cyclist had discs on their "Fusion" 'cross bike. I remember that it was 130. I think the wheelset was Velomax. Sagitus or something similar. You might be able to pick up a pair somewhere. I know it's not much info but it's all I can remember...

Velomax / Easton Sagitta wheels - 130 disc compatible clinchers - $299 wheelset

Found my solution. I am having Gunnar/ Waterford make me a custom Crosshair with a 135mm dropout instead of 130mm. Problem solved!

I'd just run a disc brake in the frount and leave the cantis in the rear.... that would be easier to switch over to race plus, do you really need more than one disc brake anyway?
