Recommendation for a 48h rear hub

Im looking for a 48h rear hub....
Just looking to build a tough multipurpose wheel. I believe I will tie them to a Velocity Chukker rim.

Flip flop preferably, I guess and I want to keep the price around 50 ish bucks.

You might find a used touring or tandem hub with 48 spoke drilling on the grey market but finding a 48 spoke hub with a flip flop for fixed / ss is a tall order... this is one of the reasons we decided to start making them at our shop where we custom build hubs in pretty much any configuration you can imagine.

Cost of these is a little more than $50.00 ish.

You can get tough in a 36 spoke rim and use a basic Formula hub which costs less than $50.00 ish.

There are a bunch of other BMX hubs but im sure the bolt is to big for the dropouts unless I modify it somehow. 4mm maybe 5mm bigger?

I also dont know much about how BMX style hubs work... I think the freewheels work differently??

Surly hubs are well made and run about 75.00 for a 135mm spacing and it looks like they now offer a 48 spoke hub... Jensons price is excellent.

Unless you are a really big rider a 36 spoke ss/fg wheel with good spokes and a good rim with a good build should stand up to some serious abuse.

I toured with a camping gear load on old Phil Freewheel hubs..
there may be a double freewheel version on The Auction site..
on a tandem hub the 2nd freewheel thread is for a drag brake, ..

mine were single threaded, I ran a 6 speed F/W..

Current Shimano Cassette tandem hubs are still RH threaded
on their left side. [at last check]

you could get a 32 hole then have 16 more holes drilled,
a story from Aarons bike in Seattle, had him drilling a Rohloff hub.
the extra 16 spokes were radial added to the 32 2 cross ones.

recently put together a 29er Red Line Monocog
its wide flanged hub's single cog was on a short freehub.
