    looking for a new hub

    im doing DH on a norco manik, i still have the original hubs, they're both cracked. I pushed up the fork to 8" so i need a hub mostly for my front tire with the (8" triple drop off 3)
    i wont spend more than 100$ for my front
    ps: doesnt need to be super light

    BTW...thats just a standard QR...

    Why not an LX hub mounted to a ryno lite. Should come in under 100$

    BTW you do know that fork isn't 8"...it is 6ish...unless you mean you bumped THAT fork up?

    You might want to try the hope xc or the hope bulb even more so. If you ever need a 20mm through axel you can convert the bulb hub..

    This is the bike he has
    http://www.norco.com/bikes/2004bikes/manik.htm
    hope it helps you all to figure out whats wrong. He pushed up the for from 6" and a bit to 8" and doing some DH he cracked it... I went with him
    DH and Street riding ...SINGLESPEED... so much better for so little. Take a look at this alternative if u have problems related to your chain, derailer, cogs, or chain coming off...

    k dudes im the fork is 6"travel, i know all that, but I set the hight at 8" and I cracked the tiny front hub, and my back hub. I really need the front one

    less than 100$ for hub only!!

    the bigger, the tuffer, the better, its for DH so i dont care about the weight + that fork weighs 1 tone

    thanks

    He's cdn, I'm guessing, meaning that the prices have to be about 70 USD or something. 1 CDN = 81 cents US I think.

    If you need a 20mm hub, go with the Marzocchi one. There is absoluetly NO REASON to pay anything more for a simple milled out piece of metal. For a rear, standard axle. XT will last Hella longer than just about anything and is light to boot. But if you want beefy. Go with a Woodman rear hub. Those are the tits.
    Dont PM me.
