All,
I have a pair of syncros lil' snapper rims in very good condition - they have a braking surface but due to the fact taut they were used with disc brakes seem to be pretty much untouched!

I'm thinking about getting them rebuilt , but can't find out which type/age of hubs would suit - they came off a '00 gt avalanche , so not *that* old.

Anyone know the approx years of manufacture, or failing that, an idea of suitable age/ quality hubs to suit?

Cheers

So they're probably from Y2K onwards, in that case anything from around 2000 on would be ok I guess, have a look at the link to the Mombat Shimano page below, should give you some ideas of what to look for hubwise...

Ah, yes didn't think of that... :oops:

I was hoping that they might have been end-of-run so a little older.

Also, thinking about non-shimano hubs - possibly hope.

Thinking about a nice mid-school build, although we will have to see...
