Looking to re-build some OPs and looking for hub options. Originally I was thinking Chris King or DT240, but alas, no 36 hole available. The obvious would be DA 9000, but still looking for other options.

EDIT: I still haven't decided if I am going Campy or SRAM next year so the ability to swap freehubs would be good.

Hope Pro 3? Not sure about the freehub swapping bit though.

Funny to post this today, I am after some 36h hubs as well and I was looking at the hope pro 3. Truth is there isn't a huge choice for 36h for campagnolo.

I have the Hope's in a 32h, and they are great hubs. They are very loud though, so if that's not your thing maybe look elsewhere. Sealing and bearings are very good, mine have nearly 10000km on them and still feel brand new, very happy with them!

Are the Hope 3's 11 speed compatible?

No personal experience, but both Ambrosio and Miche are available in 36H.

And If you go 11spd, then it's all compatible!

How many drivers does a buggy have?

One.

So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...

They are not Shimano 11 speed compatible, and I haven't tried with Campag 11 on them, maybe drop them an email? They have always been helpful in the past when I have got in touch with them.

From their site for the pro3 mono hubs:

This hub features a one piece 7075 aluminium (steel option available) rotor body and pawl carrier (Shimano or Campagnolo compatible, except 11 speed)

Hmmm....may just be better selling the set and building something new, I guess. No need for 36 hole for my riding.

I forgot about the PMP hubs: http://www.pmpbike.net/bike/Hubs.html
They have 11sp on 36h.

But they are Campy 11 spd compatible, which in turn is compatible with shimano 11 spd.

There is no difference between freehubs for Campy. Both 10 and 11-speed cassettes fit.

Hi btompkins0112, these are 36H shimano or campag compatible (but not 11spd compatible) ... http://store.velo-orange.com/index.php/components/wheelsets-rims-hubs/hubs/vo-hi-lo-set.html

thanks KL :)
