Hub for solid carbon wheels

hi everyone,

does anyone know any hubs that can fit solid wheels? I'm guessing the outer surface of the hub would have to be splined or something to fit into the wheel.

is there a standard interface size ?

thanks

By "solid carbon wheels" I assume that you are referring to disc wheels. They come with hubs already as a part of the structure. I've read about one that could be configured as either front or rear by rebuilding the hub. Still required that you had parts from that specific manufacturer though.

no sorry... carbon 5 spoked wheels, not discs.

...and if they have a hub already have a hub set into them, anyone know who makes the hubs?

If they are Aero Spokes they made their own hubs and they are removeable. Roger
