Default Maniac Mechanic hub adapter or just a different wheel?

I've been looking at ways to avoid the rag joint on my back wheel and have come across several different options. The most popular seem to be a custom sprocket adapter that clams around the hub or completely replacing the wheel with a hub/sprocket combo. Or a shift kit, but that's much further down the road.

I'm not so keen on the idea of the hub/sprocket combo because of the integrated brakes that come with them.

That leaves me with the sprocket adapter from MM. I have no idea how to buy one of the adapters. Pirate sells four different types but I have no idea which one to grab. My rear hub is a Shimano Deore LX Parallax hub. Prolly came with the bike way back in '96 when my brother bought it.

Any help or experience?
