Re: WOW ! I thought I was on my own...
If you want a really good rear hub, and are willing to spend more $, get yourself a mountain bike rear hub with a disc brake flange on the left side. Run a disc brake to sprocket adapter. If you want to take that idea even further, get a down hill racing hub with sealed bearings.
