Hi,

Looking for hubs/wheelset for a new-build on a 29er frame (Surly Karate Monkey OPS) with modular 142x12mm dropouts. I'm new to a lot of this but have been reading some of the threads on this forum about failures in some Shimano 142x12 hubs.
Can anyone recommend a widely-available reasonably-priced 142x12 hub? Are some models of the current Shimano hubs (Deore, SLX, XT etc) considered more/less problematic than others?
Or should I just not bother with the 142x12 option at all and go with standard QR hubs? The frame comes with modular dropout chips for both so I can choose either.

Thanks...

Thanks for the info but I'm not in the US, so looking only at the bigger widely available brands like Shimano, Hope, etc
