hi there
i would be very pleased if someone would recommend me a rear hub for my bike.

spacing is 135 mm, it's disc, it's 6 bolt. axle is QR but i guess i could convert whatever axle something comes in?

i want to run a sram 30 cassette on it.

should i be trying to get a mtb free hub on it so i can run bigger cassettes?

i don't know much about this stuff so feel free to elaborate.

If you want the ability to convert, go with a DT Swiss 240 hub. You can pretty much run anything on there - 10 speed (on an 11-speed freehub w/ a spacer), 11-speed, mountain cassettes, road cassettes, XD driver, QR, T/A. You name it, you can run it, and it's relatively cheap to convert.

thanks for the recommendation. i have been surprised at the cost of the dt240 but i wasn't aware of that advantage.

i have been looking at the onyx hub. thought i might give it a shot since it sounds pretty cool. the revised ratchet system and silent running might be nice for a bike i hope to use in the great outdoors.

You could also look at the DT350 hub. Almost exactly the same, but you should check to see if it's T/A compatible.

The 350 can be set up QR or thru bolt. 6 bolt versions tend to come with a 10 spd freehub not an 11 spd road though which is a costly upgrade.

Also look at Hope Pro4 - they are really versatile but a bit noisy on freewheel.

I have Hope RS4 hubs, centerlock (disc brake hub).
I have no complaints. No noises or noted drag!
As you see there are both straight pull and standard.
6 bolt or centerlock.

I currently run Sram PG-1170, 11-36, Shimano 6870GS RD with Wolf tooth Roadlink

Works great!

i have gone the onyx route and hope to run it with the sram pg-1170 and a campag SR rear derailleur. also ordered the wolf tooth.

i will report back on the onyx which seems like a cool thing. thought a silent hub might be nice since it is supposed to be a nature bike

Hope and DT are great options.

Often overlooked is the SRAM 900 and X.0 hubs. Just as convertable as the 240 but cheaper. Lighter than Hope. Great freehub mechanism.

X.0 is lighter than 900. But same freehub mechanism. You can buy the X.0 hub with 10 speed mtb or XD freehub.
10 speed mtb freehub fits 11 speed cassette 11-34 (Shimano Ultegra 8000) or 11-40/11-42/11-46 (Shimano SLX/XT/XTR)
XD freehub fits 11speed sram 10-42 cassettes

If you want to use sram 11 speed cassettes with an 11tooth smallest cog or other shimano 11 speed cassettes you need the 11 speed road freehub body. Then you need to order the '900' hub.

You can order 11 speed road freehub as a spare part and put on X.0 hub but that is an expensive option.

What cassette ratio do you want to use? That determines which freehub you want and which hub you order.

Personally I order X.0 hub with XD freehub so I can use 10-42 cassette for everyday use/adventure.
Then I bought 11 speed road freehub with sram 11-32 11 speed cassette for cyclocross racing. Easy to swap freehub body with cassette already on without tools.

DT Swiss hubs always come across to me as being heavy and very expensive.

I'm a fan of Novatec, lots of options for freehub and axle type, nicely made, easy to maintain, friendly pricing.

Cool hubs, but the MTB 12*142 rear hub was really heavy.

Miller, where do you get those Novatecs?

Looking for the thru axle centerlock versions..
