Need help finding a single speed rear 10x135mm wheel please.

Hello all.

I'm in need of a little help finding a prebuilt single speed 10x135mm disk rear wheel. Anybody know any good sites to find anything like that?

Right now I have pretty good wheelset that i built myself right now. But I have just gotten my self a new frame that now I need a new rear wheel that is disk brake capable, Single speed, and is the 10x135mm standard for my dirt jumper.

I could build my own and just buy a hub. But really if you factor in the time spent and labor. It almost costs more to buy just the hub then it does to buy a decent prebuilt wheel.

Why would you purchase a frame with that spacing for a single speed bike? It will require a larger chainline than otherwise necessary, which decreases efficiency.

Please respect others by taking the time to post clearly so we can answer quickly. All lowercase and multiple typos makes for a hard read. Thanks!

Most quality dirt jumpers are single speed with the 135mm hub spacing hubs. And even my frame manufacture (Octane One) recommends useing a single speed hub. I don't know why you think its wried.

It's not weird, the chainline is not affected in the way he thinks.

The only experience I have is with the following wheelset. It worked fine but was fairly heavy.

Cyclo-Cross Premium Wheel Set : Off Road Bike Wheels & Parts | State Bicycle Co.

Have you considered something like the Universal Cycles custom wheelbuilder?

Pre- built single speed wheels are not so easy to find. There are some 29er sets out there, but I'm guessing that its a 26" wheel for a dirt jumper. Single speed disc hubs are kind of pricey, so any rear wheel you build will be in the $400 - $500 range to buy the parts to build it. That's why I'm still using a cassette hub with a single speed cog and spacers on my single speed.

Ya I'm thinking i'm going to have to get a single speed conversion kit. Unless I suck it up and just get a hub and do the work and reuse my Ryno Lite XL Rim which is still perfect and is only like 4 months old.

hubs for 29er disc Mtb or a hub for a disc single speed. universal cycles in PDX builds custom wheels.

LBS is who I'd go to for ordering the hub and getting the wheel built. to go with a build using your rim.

Surly has sources for Asian made hubs ordered via your favorite shop.

WTB made a couple of 29er single speed wheels, 135mm - I've got one that is basically un-used. I don't see anyone selling them now, all show as out of stock.
I see these:
WTB Laserdisc Trail Rear Wheel 29" Singlespeed MTB Mountain Bike Excellent | eBay
Sun Ringle Rhyno Lite Single Speed Rear 29er Wheel Disc or Rim Brake | eBay
Stans ZTR Arch 29 29er Single Speed Wheel True and Tubeless Ready | eBay

Just build the wheel. Less expensive hubs are available. Woodman and Surly are $100 or less. Pauls are available for $144 and Whites at $175.

Ya sorry I never said but I'm looking for 26" size. But I think I'm going to bite the bullet and just buy a Hub and rebuild the wheel I have.

Just use spacers and a single cog. $20 and you're done. As a bonus the wheel can be used for a geared bike in the future.

The only time I don't use a multi-speed cassette hub when building a rear wheel is when I'm building a wheel for fixed gear use.

I'd suggest spending more than $20 on the cog alone. Thin cogs chew right through freehub bodies. You'll want a thick cog or a nice cog carrier.

I've never had a problem with the cheap stamped cogs on genuine steel Shimano freehub bodies. Your results may vary on the knockoff hubs. They're probably at least as thick as a cog from a multi-speed cassette, and those can be installed "loose" as part of a cassette.

I've had good luck with the Gusset Double six cogs and their spacer set. Although, for a dirt jumper, I wouldn't want to run a cassette wheel. A dedicated single speed hub has wider bearing and flange spacing to better support the axle on those hard landings.
