If you are looking for a flip flop hub there are tons of cheap Chinese crap hubs out there due to the fixie kids. Otherwise if you plan on running a single speed freewheel only then any old road hub will work. Just change the quick release axel to a solid bolt on type, respace the cones to 120 and BAM your are good to go.
Ah, I didn't think of that. Thank you. I'm not too familiar with road components. What is the physical size of a road hub body that's made to accept a screw on cassette? Yes, I will be using a screw on freewheel. I tried Fixed for a couple of weeks, it wasn't for me. I like brakes and being able to coast
I could get an On-One High flanged hub for £15 in silver, but to be honest the rims I'm using don't even justify spending that. If all goes well with the first build I've got another set of rims that I'll get some On-One hubs for.
Just checked and a high flanged hub would be perfect, because the original wheel has a Sturmey Archer hub and the spokes would be the right length. So, no need to buy different spokes = Virtually a no cost build.
