    Please help me find a SS hub for dirt jumping

    Hi all. I have been searching for a single speed hub for my dirt jumping MTB, but have only found 2 that are questionable.

    It needs to have disc brake mounts, either threads for a freewheel or a cassette body that is meant for only 1 cog, and 36 holes for spokes.

    I was hoping to find a hub similar to those BMX hubs where the cog is super tiny, but I have not found anything similar. Only these:

    Nashbar "Cassette" Hub

    DMR Revolver SS Hub

    I am pretty sure both of those are fixed gear though

    Any help would be great. Thanks.

    Wouldn't any disc hub fulfil your requirement?

    I mean, you could easily turn a cassette disc hub into a singlespeed hub with a cog and spacers.

    How much do you want to spend?

    The DMR hub is not for fixed gear and would work fine for jumping.

    This DMR hub has a BMX-style driver, though I don't see the advantage. Might have to order it from the UK.

    The Hope hub is really nice, but expensive. It is cassette-style for a single cog.

    The Atomlab hub takes single cogs like the Hope. Specifically designed for DJ. ~$190.

    There are a lot of options out there.

    I have a front brake, but I only use it for slowing or stopping.

    Get this, don't look back. Its the best.

    Plus if you want a rear carrier that will fit tiny cogs, this one goes down to 12. You don't want a threaded FW hub since the smallest you can currently buy is a 16t. AC used to make a 15t but that is long gone and out of production.

    Plus, for serious duty, I would get a WI FW anyway, the AC was never sealed that well.

    Get the DMR Revolver. I had one laced to a 24" FUNN BMX rim on a Norco mountain bike. that hub is pretty bombproof.

    i would recommend going to mtbr.com or pinkbike.com there are a lot of people who dirt jump, many (or even most) on single speeds. there are a ton of parts for that market, but you aren't going to find more than a couple people here in what is 95% road-only fixed gear kids who are knowledgeable about dirt jumping.
