Inexpensive 135mm Rear hub recommendation.

Inexpensive 135mm Rear hub recommendation. Title says is all. Looking for a recommendation for a 135mm hub for a cyclocross wheel build. Can be either 32 or 36 hole.

Shiimano Alivio. Solid Shimano at a low price. Obviously you can move up the Shimano line if you're willing to spend more.

+1 above. Shimano hubs are pretty darn good even at their lower levels.

Don't know how what speeds you are planning on but I have a 36 hole 7 speed Shimano Acera rear hub just sitting around. I am sure we can work something out. Pm me if you are interested.

I saw this thread, and was going to say, "any relatively lower-end Shimano mtb hub." but at this point, I'm relegated to saying +2.

Deore or LX are my favorite, Bombproof enough, but still pretty cheap. You can pay less, but considering how little a really good hub is, why not splurge for the $30 deore?

+1, this will probably be the hub for the wheel.

Definitely recommend the run of the mill Shimano hubs for most purposes. There are better hubs out there, but to improve upon a mid-level Shimano requires pretty big coin. They are one of the few good deals in the bike world.

Specifically, the LX is a great hub for the price.

I do not know if you are going to be doing the build or if you are paying to have it done, but there are some good deals out there on prebuild wheelsets with the hubs you are looking at. I actually got a pair of Salsa Delgado's laced to XT hubs used of ebay for $110 shipped. Used but in great shape, smooth and true.
Using them on my winter build.

Look for the more "upper-tier" Shimano's as well. I recently found Ultegra's for $100 a set*. While those may be out of your range, my point is to shop around.


* Sale is over. Sorry.
