Rear Hub

Folks,

This has to work with disc brakes - I'm being offered a Velocity Fusion 24 spoke rims with an xt front hub and a formula rear hub. I don't really want a formula hub, poor reputation esp rear hubs but I've got little choice in disc compatible 24 spoke.

Any experience out there? Do I go for that or swop for a 28 hole for better availability of stuff (hope / chris king) I'm 75kg without cloths or luggage on the bike. I want something fast but reasonably sturdy.

Suspension hubs?

Thanks

Should say this is in relation to the Optima Baron I just ordered ()

I have a pantour front hub and it is nice.
Ithink velocity makes one too but I am not positive.
