    Rear XT hub for disc brakes!?

    I am having my LBS build me a new rhynolite wheel for my rear after they did an excelent job with the lefty front wheel with the rhynolite rim. I can not find an XT rear disc hub (the new one) online anywhere. My LBS is quoting 75 I believe for the hub. Is that about right for the XT rear disc hub?

    Also I do not understand if a pair of XT hubs are 50 and 75 how are these places building a rhynolite wheelset for 150 or even 200? I know they are machiene built but wow that is cheep. In comparison the hand build wheel from the LBS is 39 for the rim , 20 or so for the spokes, 30 for labor, and 75 for the hub (the XT disc), about 180 dollars or so. (the front to build is about 150 with the lower cost 50 dollar xt disc front hub. That makes the wheelset almost 320 dollars to be handbuilt. Is that right? I see handbuilt sets for considerably less online.

    BTW it cost me 70 dollars to build the left front wheel, using my hub...

    are you looking for the centerlock disc version or the 6 bolt? If your looking for center look for for the 765's. If 6 bolt, then 756.

    At the prices your looking at you might as well go for the better hub

    cartridge bearings . These will outlast the XT hubs.

    I will take a look, I am looking for 32 hole hubs for sure. Durability is very important as there are going on my patrol / all mountian bike and I can put on 3000+ miles per year on the bike, not to mention all the curb hopping and stairs, etc.

    THose jujus are definantly for you then. 32h is all they come in, and look they are nice looking too. Tough tough tough! These things are built like a bear, though i think the XT's are probably as strong. The jujus will outlast them, especially if your doing 3k per year
