A 10 speed rear disc brake hub?

Maybe I am being dense but I can't find a rear hub that accepts a 10 speed cassette and is disc brake compatible. Is there one out there or do I have to go to a 9 speed cassette? This is going on a road bike but I am happy with a MTB hub.

Thanks

Daven

Most 10 speed cassettes will go on a 9 speed hub.

Thanks, well that is that problem sorted! When I choose my hub and cassette I will come back here and double check compatibility.

Any Shimano-compatible 10-speed cassette will fit on a 9-speed Shimano-compatible freehub. The issue you may have with using a MTB rear hub on a road frame is spacing. MTB rear hubs are 135mm, while road are 130mm. Many hubs will allow spacers to be removed to shorten the OLD (over-locknut dimension) by 5mm. If it's a quick-release axle, you may need a new axle. Also, the wheel should be re-dished.

if you respace a mtn disc hub to 130mm you will mess up the spacing for the disc rotor. you may also need a small spacer to put the 10sp cassette on a 9spd freehub

In which case i'd like to know what road bikes have a 130mm rear that supports disc.

The frame I am looking at says

In between dropout spacing at 132.5mm. Run road or MTB spacings with no problems thanks to the joy of springy steel!

So a 135mm hub will be fine- also the wheel will be being built from scratch so it should be ok

Thanks
