Title says it, the time has come to build a new rear wheel and I am wondering if a CLD tandem hub exists yet?

DT Swiss makes a 145, 6 bolt tandem hub, but they aren't cheap.

It looks like Velocity has a tandem hub for a bit more reasonable cost.

White Industries also has a 6 bolt hub, not cheap.

I'm seeing quite a few 142mm and 150mm hubs, mostly 12mm thru axle.

This one is showing up as 145mm, but the FH-M806 is supposed to be 150mm, 12mm through axle, so I don't know.

Most 135 hubs with standard threaded axles could have a 145mm axle installed. However, it might leave the brake 10mm more towards the middle than the usual position, so it could be problematic.

I doubt that you'll find a 145mm Centerlock hub because it's such a small niche market, especially when the mfg has to pay royalties to Shimano. Why is the Centerlock feature important to you?

Not a 145mm CLD that I know of.

However, White Industries has a Boost 148mm CLD rear with high flanges, a 15mm cromo axle and Ti freehub body. Do a search on "Boost" hubs for an explanation of that spec. This one looks like it would make for an excellent tandem hub. If we were not restricted to the narrowest of q-factors, I would opt for this one. see: CLD BOOST ? White Industries

Caveat: I'm not sure if WI makes this hub only as thru axle or if they can do a QR version too. Their front hub Boost hubs seem to allow for both, but unknown for the rear hubs. BTW, their "XMR" model is the 6-boldt ISO Boost version.

Other mfr have Boost CLD hubs too (DT Swiss 350 for one), but when you factor in bearings, axles, flanges, etc, IMO the WI hub is better suited for tandem loads.

Some interesting early pics plus info posted here: https://www.bikerumor.com/2015/09/18/...bike-versions/

It was for this reason that we had our frame built with 135 spacing. I didn't find any 145 CLD hubs. Good luck.
