Been trying to build up my first mtb into a single speed commuter, but just found that the rear hub is totally goosed. Now I could attempt to service it, but the noise its making I reckon its beyond repair.
Thought it would be an excellent opportunity to test my wheel building skills and try to replace the hub given the rim is fine. Given I'm trying to keep the costs down to basically nothing i'm keen to reuse all the old spokes. (i imagine having to buy new spokes isn't particularly cost effective and I might as well buy a new wheel.
I've found the cheapest 36 hole hub going,
How would I know if this would just swap in with the existing generic 36 hole shimano hub that is there?
