    Recommendations for 48h Front hub

    Looking for as big as a flange as possible, I want the wheel to be super tough. I dont care much about weight. So it could be a bmx or whatever.. Or if anyone has one they wouldn't mine selling I would be interested to.

    My budget is around 50$

    Just curious as to what need you would have for a 48h front hub?

    I've built a 48h rear hub for a tandem but there is no need for a 48h on the front in my experience.

    I am an optimist, it doesn't seem too much use being anything else.

    yea, you might find a 48 hole bmx hub, since stunt riding abuse has made a market niche,
    that the Chinese manufacturers pursue. it will be nut/bolt axle .

    have you asked at any bike shops where you live. ?

    Polo, Yeah I do have a couple. I will call them today. They wouldn't stock parts like this though. Probably just go with a origin 8 one or something..

    It seems like a well-built 36 spoke front wheel should be plenty strong. What are you planning to do with this bike?
