Paul Components Fat Bike 170 Cassette Hub

White Industries T11 Hub

We told you about new 170mm RHUB and T11 hub at Interbike, and now, they are officially available for purchase.  As a refresher, the Paul Components 170 RHUB is purpose built for 170mm rear spaced fat bike frames, accepts a cassette, uses an Industry Nine freewheel, and accepts a 6 bolt ISO disc rotor.  You can get it in any drilling you want, as long as it’s 32 hole.  This 170mm RHUB weighs in at 427g.   Making this part of your fat bike wheelset will set you back $440 for silver or black ano, and $446 if you want the bling of high polish.

White Industries T11 is showing up in the wild now as well.  The 130mm T11 is spaced to accept a Campy or Shimano 11 speed cassette (depending on which model you need), but can be used with older 8 / 9 / 10 speed cassettes with the right spacer.  Weight is fairly light at 252g, and spoke drilling options include 20h, 24h, 28, 32h, and 36h.  Otherwise the internals are the same great stuff the always popular H3 hubs use.  MSPR is $272.95.
