I’m building up a new polo bike for the first time in many years (Enforcer 13 26”) I am going to build up a wheelset too but am having a hard time finding a matching set of hubs that are dedicated single speed rim brake rear and disc front.
I guess I am really having a hard time finding a single speed rear hub (freewheel or freebody) that is non disc (rim brake) that matches a disc brake front. Seems you need to make one of the following compromises: front disc with matching rear single speed disc ( the disc mount would go unused), OR a disc front with a matching rear non-disc rear but it’s a multispeed freebody and you’ll end up with some unnecessary dish for a ss wheel, OR a non matching set of hubs where you’d have non-disc ss in rear and a disc in front but the spoke circle diameters are different and one hub will have tall flanges and the other will have short flanges (as with a Paul WORD hub paired to a Paul Disc Fhub).
Currently leaning towards having a matchi g set with an unused rear disc mount like the Paul Disc WORD and the Disc Fhub, or any Chris King, Hope, or Onyx single speed freebody sets.
Also what are your thoughts on single speed freewheel vs single speed cassette?
TLDR: what high end hub manufacturers make a single speed non- disc (rim brake) rear hub?
