Its a bulb :wink: Only the bulb has that type of rotor carrier,all the others and also the bulb's rear is the star pattern.

The bolt through bits are hard to come by so best keep them with the hub. Finding the axle however is also difficult but not impossible and if youre really really stuck you can use the bearings and axle from the sport or XC or any hope front as long as the distances internally are the same :?
Year escapes me but 2003 rings a bell :?
About £25 for it would be fair.Built into a wheel maybe another tenner but not any more than that i think. :?

Defo a Bulb (I'm amassing a collection them it seems at the moment). Pretty sure they're older than 2003 though, if I remember correctly they were 6 bolt by this time, although I could be wrong.

As for price, I bought one without an axle for a tenner so I guess fifteen to twenty quid is fair for a complete one especially as this one has the disc carrier and the all important lock ring.
