Wheel Master Alloy SF Tandem Rear Hub - 40H, 135mm, 9-Speed Cassette, Sealed, QR, Bla
#1
Just got one of these. The price is incredibly low. It was purchased as part of my research for our JT and the T50. The T50 is 140mm OLD - very few hubs out there that will fit. Shimano's current tandem hub is available in 145mm and 160mm; and costs nearly $200-. DT has a 140mm hub, but it is MUCH more expensive.

The hub arrived yesterday, and my wife put up my initial review on Amazon:

If you are looking for a strong 135mm OLD 40H hub, check this one out, the price is incredibly low.

For a hybrid, build this up with a Sun Rhyno Lite rim, and Wheelsmith SS14 spokes for a bomb proof wheel.

Nice big flanges. I worry about the bearings not being replaceable but that's just because I am often subject to Mr Murphy and his first law. Whatever can go wrong etc,etc...

That is going to be one strong wheel. I'd love to have one like that with a 559rim..
