    Would you recommend this Marzocchi hub?

    I have a limited choice of hubs for a wheel build I want to do, that use a 20mm axle. LBS has as one of these Marz hubs for about £45 ($70). Problem is, it looks cheap and the quality of finish is poor. There is something about the hub that looks tatty, even though it's new. Upto now, it was either going to be something really expensive and this hub is at the other end of the spectrum and I'm wondering if the price it's on sale for is a fair reflection of what you get. I know Marz do excellent shocks, but that does not mean they do excellent hubs. You don't eat pizza in a steak house, if you understand me?

    Shimano don't do 20mm axles. Magura and Hope do. But inbetween there are not too many choices. If the Marz hub is my only other choice, I'll go for it, but maybe you guys have some ideas about it, or other manufacturers that sell 20mm hubs.

    I am pretty sure that marzocchi wouldent put their name on a component that isnt good....and if you arent doing big drops and crap then why worry so much?

    Hey Bokkie, most of the front 20mm hubs work well. There is not much to them as apposed to the rear and not as much stress.

    The Zoch hubs work well and you should have no problem with it. I believe they use Ringle hubs with their name on it. So if you want the specs check this site out ;

    I'm running these Profile Racing Hubs. They are top quality and the finish is top-notch all the greatest quality bearings and maching.

    Check them out at www.profileracing.com

    Here's a pic:

    BTW, price is around $125, plus shipping to UK if not available there! I'm sure it is, check shops that specialize in BMX stuff. Profile got their start in BMX and now does a lot of DH and slalom Mtb stuff!

    Not if you use to race BMX with the guy that handles all their sponsorship! Plus, I can get them cheaper b/c I work PT in a shop! Plus, they're made about 45 mins to an hour North of my home. I've ridden with Profile cranks on my BMX bikes and now my mtn bike since I was 13. They make excellent products. Their stuff is bombproof, especially their newer SS stuff!
