- Stans 3.30 hubs … Thoughts?
I currently have a pair of 3.3o hubs laced into some 26” Olympic rims.
The bike they were bought for has now been split and has gone.
I don’t need a set of 26” wheels so thinking about rebuilding them into some 29er wheel.
What are peoples thoughts on the hubs?
Good substitute for say a Hope hub?Posted 3 years agomboySubscriber
No personal experience of them, but probably cheaper overall to sell them as built wheels and buy a new 29er set I’d have thought? New Stans rims are £70ish apiece, plus spokes, plus build… You’re over £200. You’ll get half decent money for those wheels, and put that cash towards new 29er wheels and the difference you’ll have to make up will be a lot less than £200 I would say.Posted 3 years agomboySubscriber
I thought the ZTR hubs were pretty much off-the-shelf Taiwanese parts, and as such nothing special?
They’re definitely a good step up from off the shelf Taiwanese hubs like Superstar. Their RRP’s are higher than Hope, which IMO is slightly misleading, but they’re not bad quality at all.
I still prefer Hope though, mainly cos of spares availability being so strong. DT Swiss if you got the money though, best out there!Posted 3 years ago
