MTB hubs

Postby crossracer1 » Thu Apr 19, 2012 7:12 am

So am looking for a rear MTB hub that has good flange spacing. I bought Alchemy hubs for my road bike and love them. I have a lefty so will probably go with project 321 unless anybody knows of better front hubs? The rear hub is my real question though as I am not sure what the best rear hub would be. I am racing and riding for fun. weigh 220. thanks

It's really hard to just recommend a MTB hub, as it could be used for anything from XC to downhill racing.

Also, do you need just a QR hub, X-12 or what it's called or a through axle?

For the front, I couldn't tell if they're better or not since I don't know the project 321 hubs, but the Tune Cannonball and Cannonball SL lefty hubs are both very nice and lighter. If you want matching hubs, that's probably what I'd do.
