130mm spaced disc hub. What are my options?

I'm trying to get together parts for a 2004 Redline Conquest Disc-R. Any suggestions? I'd like something 32 or 36h if possible.

You can buy a 135 and respace the hub down to 130.

There are plenty of hubs out there for 130 spacing that are disc compatible. I'm not at the shop so cant look it up right now. You dont want to cold set an aluminum frame.

I recently brought a pair of LX disc that were 135, and had the axle cut to 130 and the wheel redished. Work's fine.....

Thanks. Please keep us posted if you can. Most of the LBS folks here have just scratched their heads when I asked about this.

I bet your frame is spaced 135mm.

Oooh, I am wrong. Why did they do that.

QBP doesn't list any disc hubs that are 130mm.

I am in the same boat - I have a 2005 Conquest Disc-R frame. As far as I can tell, there are two production 130mm rear disc hubs, one made by DT Swiss, and the other by Paul Components.

I have been able to find two wheelsets with a 130mm rear disc hub. FSA makes one, the RD 460, which is still being made, and apparently the Easton/Velomax Sagitta wheelset was spaced for 130mm, but it isn't being made anymore, and I haven't been able to find a pair for sale anywhere on the internet yet. I don't think that FSA will sell the hub by itself.

Velocity also aparently makes a 130mm disc hub. They have pictures of it on their website, but list no price, and none of the dealers of Velocity products they list on their website seem to carry them.

It seems like it just might be easier to get a front disc compatible wheel made to your specs, and then just use a sidepull on the back. I have been seriously considering this route.

I saw a Hope trials hub online that looks like it might be able to be respaced. It's designed for a cassette singlespeed kit.

Since I plan to run this bike singlespeed, an Eno Hub and a caliper on the back would be another option. Or I could run it fixed With the ENO with just the disc up front.

I e-mailed White Industries to see if they make a 130 eccentric disc hub. Somehow I doubt it though.

Yeah. That Velocity hub looks like the best/most affordable option if it can be tracked down.

I emailed Velocity this morning about these hubs, and they told me to email www.spinlitecycling.com and ask them to order the disc road hubs. I am waiting to hear back from them about it.

A White Industies rep e-mailed back this morning. She said they offer spacing to 130 on the eccentric ENO ss disc hub but there tend to be alignment issues with the caliper/rotor. Here's the Hope trials hub I was talking about:



I guess there would be the same issue here if those spacers were removed.

I would like to know where the spacers go. I had the same thing suggested to me in this thread: Is the 5mm from 130 to 135 Really That Important?

It seems more and more that 135mm hubs are the way to go. I know with my build that I would like to have sturdier wheels for pothole eating/trail riding/possibly cyclocross for fun, and the price difference between say, Nashbar's generic disc compatible wheelset and the FSA wheelset is almost $200.

Yeah. I am a total disc noob so I'm not entirely sure I understand the alignment problem.

I'm learning wheelbuilding and I really would not mind having to do a build, but like you said the main issue is cost. I would really like to be able to run two discs and not have to run a caliper in back.

With the fixed side of an ENO hub and disc up front it would be pretty cool I guess but I have two fixed gear bikes already. This one would have better stopping power in the rain and the ability to run full fenders with little hassle, but for the price difference between a standard fixed hub and an ENO I could almost buy a cheap fixed gear frame. I'm considering pulling out my headset and cutting my losses

In my opinion, cross frames should come stock with 132.5 spacing anyway giving more options for hubs, especially disc! Both cross bikes I've had have had this spacing and I've use road hubs (130 spacing) and Mtn hubs (135) with both. Also if you're considering spreading the stays going 2.5 mm with aluminum is much safer than going 5mm. Also be sure and check alignment.

I have found two more possibilites - the first is a Bontrager wheelset, the Select Disc Road, which is standard on the Trek Portland.

The second is a Taiwanese company called Joy-Tech, whos disc compatible hubs are used on the Schwinn World DBX(?), which is a high performance commuter. http://www.novatec.com.tw/novatec/en....php?c1=2&c2=6. They have Shimano 8/9 and 10 speed compatible hubs, and, interestingly, a Campy compatible disc hub!

The Velocity USA representitive I had been talking to reccommended two companies to contact about their 130mm disc hubs, but neither company has gotten back to me, and I don't really expect them to. I have also emailed two local shops about the Bontrager wheels, and hopefully they will at least have the decency to email me back with a refusal

Edit 2: I found the Novatec hubs above on eBay! http://cgi.ebay.com/Novatec-D351SB-D...QQcmdZViewItem

I'm willing to bet that they might be able to get the other hubs, too.

Thanks! I've bookmarked the page. That's the #1 candidate now for sure.

Now... what color unmachined Deep V's should I get?



(I like the obnoxious lime green most currently.)

Velocity Deep V rims? Any shop that's a dealer should be able to get them for you. Some of the more unusual colors are in limited supply. I have a pair in brown on order and they're taking a while.

The unmachined colors are popular with the brakeless fixed gear kids, but why should they have all the fun? We can have pretty colored rims and actually stop our bikes. Cool, huh?
