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?

For the SET

For $20 more he can get XT http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/120...Rims---14G.htm
Of course he didn't mention what brake system he has but oh well.

Not really hard. Crap hubs are easy to crack...

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..

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.
