Rear Wheel Hubs
« on: 28 April 2021, 11:19:22 pm »
What have others used for their rear wheel to axle hubs, my axle is Ø25mm and I have been looking on the Gemini site but their hubs for that size of axle are clamp on units, the only proper type of hub unit is for Ø1".

StefanN - Would it be possible to start a new thread on Where to get Stuff with just a list of suppliers and brief description of what they sell, it would save having to trawl through articles and not find an answer.

To start -
Steel Suppliers - Rapid Metals (www.rapidmetals.co.uk) They stock a complete range of metals for collection or delivery.

Axle Springs - Midland Motor Springs - (www.midlandmotorsprings.com) Suppliers of front axle springs

Engines - Westbank Wholesale (www.westbankwholesale.co.uk) Suppliers of Lifan engines etc

You get the picture

Absolutely.   The aim of the where to find stuff section is exactly that.   Whatever taxonomy you choose, there’s always an alternative.

If you’re happy to volunteer to maintain a post with a list of suppliers, that would be excellent.  Simply create a topic in the “where to get stuff” section, with the title “List of Suppliers” and start compiling the list.   

I can pin the Topic so that it’s highlighted.

As far as rear hubs are concerned these are described in various build journals in the where to get stuff.  Try typing “rear hub” into the search box in the top right hand corner of the website.

Chris Slade, Marek and I have used the aluminium 4 hole hub from Gemini karts.   They normally have studs on but I asked Gemini to press those out and they did.   Chris uses then on Honda style wheels.  https://www.geminikarts.co.uk/product/rear-wheel-hub/

Graham H has come up with a design of steel plate that bolts to a standard 3 bolt gokart hub, and have a 4 hole pattern that matches the mounting points on a pitbike wheel, but I suspect might suit a Honda wheel too.   Gemini karts hold the stock and they are pretty cheap. https://www.geminikarts.co.uk/product/steering-wheel-adaptor-plate/.  I’ll try to add a photo tomorrow.

I used the Gemini aluminium hub, it has a keyway and it also clamps to the axle, so it is quite secure. I pressed out the studs and had to grind off the spigot. They are mated to Honda rear hubs, see pics.
