Hi all, Im new to the forum, I own a 2007 Supreme mini dh from new. Ive been away for a while without my bike so now that Im home, I need to fix it up again. The only mod to the drivetrain is an e13 chain device which is running perfect. The problem I am having is the commencal rear hub, it seems to be skipping at the same amount of revolutions of the wheel constantly, Im a heavy rider its always been used on downdhill and as I was told they are pretty terrible I want to replace it. The hub is commencal and the rim is a Sun rim sl1. The wheel is currently quick release but I have no problem changing to bolt through.
I dont really want to spend the earth but was looking at either a shimano saint or Hope pro 2 hub. My problem is I dont have a clue where to start. I know there are widths of hubs, I think this one is 135mm? I assume this is dictated by the width of the swingarm flanges but even then if measured from the wrong point.... I also see that some hubs are of different shapes with flanges which protrue alot from the main body of the hub and some which are pretty low profile. Anyways Im juts wanting someone to point me in the right direction as to which hub will fit, what size the hub has to be etc. I had also been looking at complete wheels on ebay like:
but I am unsure of how to figure out if it will fit or not. I know im clueless on this so im expcecting smart answers but Ive given all the info my little head can muster. Below is a pic of the hub, any help appreciated guys and gals, thanks.
