Hello all!

A bit of a long shot, but I'm after a pair of tandem hubs that are compatible with an Arai-style thread on brake. Freehub only!

Ideally looking at a set of Hope's (I just missed a set on eBay, absolutely gutted), White Industries or Phil Wood. Willing to spend for the right set!

Would also consider a Shimano HB-F08 to match my rear hub. Can't be dealing with mismatched hubs!

All the best,

Jack

I have a Hope rear tandem hub, 40 holes, 135mm over lock nuts, freehub drive and screwed non-drive side. Whether this has space to mount an Arai on the non-drive side I have no idea as these hubs are normally built with 145mm OLN axles so then have an additional 10mm available.

I always used it with a second rim brake, so did not need the screwed hub.

I've got a pair of NOS 48h Hope tandem hubs, 140mm OLN rear, 9-speed steel freehub body, threaded for a drum brake. Might take a bit of digging to find them ...

I have a NOS Shimano XT rear tandem hub in my stash. Never built, it's currently 145mm OLN which can be reduced down if necessary. I'm pretty sure the skewer is included (not lost)

Send me a PM if you are interested in knowing more.

That does sound perfect — do you have a price in mind? DM me if you prefer (:
