Hi all, my rear hub has died and have been quoted £200 to have a Hope hub fitted. Seems a bit pricey so my options as I see them are:

Fit a cheaper hub - not sure what? Will prob still
Be £150 with full wheel rebuild???

Hope wheels, £375

Stans wheels,£375

What would be best, bike is 2013 Camber 29er, XC and trails.

Thanks

    Superstar do a Trace Trail and their electro hubs for £220.....seems a good deal, reviews of their hubs and Ryde rims seem ok??

    I think you can get a custom built wheel from merlin for around 240 with a hope pro 4 hub or get a set of hope hoops on pro 4 hubs and have a spare front wheel?

    edit £216 for rear hope pro 4 on merlin cycles

    £220 to just have the Hope hub fitted is high. I'd go for a new complete wheel. I have a set of Hope Enduro Enduro 4 on the Bossnut and they are great. Just bear in mind that you might need new rotars depending on how the fit to the hub.
