    looking for a hub...

    I'm looking for a very specific hub. I want a rear hub that is single speed with a driver instead of a cassette body. It also has to be aluminum, 32h, and disc brake compatible. Does anyone know of a brand that makes such a hub?

    That's one option, but i don't want a freewheel. I need a driver so i can run a 9t or 10t cog to go with my 28t chainring. Trying to spend $100 - $200, at least your in the right price range.

    What are you running for a frame?

    I'm asking because you're going to venture into your drivetrain's lifespan to be on the short side, if this is for a dj type bike it will be fine, but if you are going to use this for something where you are going to put in some miles on it in a single go, it is going to be far less than ideal and you would probably be better off going with a bigger chainring and bigger cog/freewheel. Less chainwrap=shorter lifespan of the drivetrain.

    Instead of doing all that hunting around for a hub to retain your 28t chainring, why not just go up a bit in cog size on a normal cassette hub and use the Wheels Mfg. SSK-3 conversion on the back. It makes a very clean installation - - on the cheap - - and gives you the added bonus of the chain guide plates sandwicjhing the cog. That's what I did on my Yeti DJ - -

    Because it's 27 dollars outside your budget?

    I still don't know exactly why you want to go microdrive on a bike that has vertical dropouts, you'll likely will need to run a tensioner and there just won't be enough chain wrap to be effective, I don't believe in the magic gear thing. I would just build a good wheel with a freehub body so that you have a broader range of gear options in the back and run a slightly taller chainring/chainwheel up front than a 28.

    Did the microdrive thing and hated every moment of it.
