First question is does your current disk have 5 or 6 bolts and does it use a spider to then mount to the hub? If you have a 5 bolt disc with a spider setup that you wish to retaij then this makes hub choice more restrictive, but then you could always buy a new 6 boot standard disc anyway, opening up your choice massively! Depending on budget you may find its cheaper to buy a complete new wheel too.

In which case pretty much any disc hub will work mate, budget is your main guide for a recommendation, +£50 you can't beat Hope in my opinion. Happy shopping!
