    Decent, lightweight 28 hole hub

    Hi, I'm in need of a 135mm hub with 28 holes or fewer for a bike that only gets light trail use. Any recommendations?

    (If there is one that is 24 holes, that would be even better!)

    Many thanks

    Thanks guys! Jim, how do you fit a 135mm axle in the RD 205? Or can one custom order it?

    Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!
