i've got a set of mavic crossride wheels, non-disc, that i'd like to add disc brakes to. but. they're 28-hole rims. are there disc-compatible, 9-speed compatible, hubs out there that won't cost a mint?


please and thanks!

I believe WTB is doing a 28 hole disc hub now. Haven't seen them in person yet though.

Hope Pro II - 28 hole hubs

Hi there

I bought a pair of Mavic XM819 rims for a great price on eBay (US$80) - but failed to notice they were 28 holes. Then I discovered there are very few 28 hole hubs available.

Eventually got the a pair of Hope Pro II hubs from an eBay supplier in the UK - I think they worked out to about $US350 for the pair shipped to Aus.

Really happy with the hubs (and the rims) Freewheel is very loud, but I like it. And you can convert to through axle with a kit.

Went for Alpine III triple butted spokes to compensate for the relatively few number of spokes.

Gone tubeless now too.

Cheers

Nic

You are better of building with new rims than trying to re-use used rims. It is difficult at best to get the balanced spoke tension required for a durable wheel.

28 Hole is Gay......the rims are not going to build good anyway, so why not spend an extra $80.00 on some real rims with new hubs and then you have new wheels without gay 28 holes
