    28h MTB hubs...

    So I jumped on the crazy deal on Nashbar yesterday and grabbed myself a pair of rims for my mountain bike. Figure wheels is as good of place as any to start slowly beefing it up a bit since the thing is kind of a POS right now, and for $5.90 each, I can't really go wrong. Well, I thought so anyways. I got the 28h rims and now am having more than a slightly fun time finding decently priced 28h hubs to go with them. I need a front disk, rear 8speed hub. Don't need XTR or XT quality, just a solid and decent hub to let me dive into my first wheel building attampt.

    On a side note - it was suggested on some thread some time ago that it may be possible to use 36h hubs. While probably not ideal - is it really even a realistic idea?

    You might want to check ebay, there are lots of older NOS 8 speed stuff for cheap. I receintly picked up a NOS 28h XT hub for $20 shipped. Just don't be in a hurry and you will find what you need.
    Becareful buying/selling bike parts on-line. I learned the hard way. :(
