I have no need for an 11 speed cassette on my light, weekend tourer. Currently, I'm looking for options to build some new wheels, but most hubs are spaced 11-speed. This is obviously not a big deal, but if I can make a sturdier wheel for the same weight, why not.

I like BHS's SL210 SuperLight hub, but it's spaced for 11spd. Is there anyone still selling new 9-10 spd hubs?

Do you mean the 1.85mm difference in DS flange position is concerning you?

Thats the size spacer you need to fit with a 10s cassette onto an 11s freehub.

It's not much. I guess you'd have to look for used hubs.

Behind the question is a false assumption that a "10-speed" hub is necessarily any different or "better" in it's flange location than an 11-speed. In fact it's a poor way to describe a hub.

As an example, Campagnolo have had "11-speed" hub spacing since about 1999, being 9, 10 and 11-speed compatible, while their wheels have enjoyed a pretty good reputation. Similarly Mavic hubs have been 11-speed compatible over a similar timeframe. I guess the flange spacing didn't worry them.

Any aftermarket hub for which a "Campy" freehub could have been bought will also have this spacing. Which would be quite a lot of them.

Based on drawings I can find, the difference between 10-speed Shimano and current 11-speed hubs is 1.5 mm in DS flange location, when measured to the C/L. Which would apply to all currently available 11-speed wheels, whether Campy, Shimano, whatever. I've heard no outcry about wheel problems as a result.

There's better things to worry about than whether a hub is described as 10 or 11-speed since it says nothing about flange location.

That's nice feedback, thanks! I'll build a wheelset for the first time since my teen years and I'm a bit rusty on the new stuff.

There's no shortage of advice here from some serious wheel builders (myself not included), so don't hesitate to ask questions.
