I have come into possession of a pair of stans ztr 340 24/28 rims recently and am considering building them into a disc wheelset for my cross bike. Does anybody have any recommendations for a budget hubset? Preferably something that can be converted from quick release to thru axles at some time in the future, should I upgrade the frameset.
I'm looking at circus monkey hdw3 (which I believe is QR only) and dati m5/m6, both of which I can really only find on eBay in the US. Budget is under $250 for the hubset.

Novatec rear hub (D772SB) lasted less than 2 months of riding. First the freewheel mechanism jammed, after fixing that the bearings were finished. No pressure washing etc used. The front hub is still ok.

No more Novatec for me.

I've had good luck with Novatec and would choose them over the listed products. Their rear hubs are a bit heavier than the lightest offerings out there though.

I have Bitex on my disc bike. They make a real nice centerlock version now.

Two cross seasons on BHS (bitex), no issues even after many muddy races. Some people burn through the bearings, but they are pretty cheaply replaced.

I have the Circus Monkey front but went with BHS rear as I was scared off by the reports of failing freehubs with the rear CM hub. Zero issues so far with the CM front BHS rear.

Interesting. I've been running a 771/772 pair for about 6000k on and off road and they are like new.
