not that I know of. I tried a few times to get in contact with them a year or so ago, and couldn't. I assume they are no longer being made.

Ok, I'll do it myself. I ordered my 32" wheel today.
Have the 100mm hubs been sturdy and stable enough, or will I definitely need to go for 125mm width? I will be riding mostly on pavement, maybe some light off road. I don't see big drops or extreme riding in my future,(at least not intentional)!

Numerous people, myself included do light off road on 100mm hub 36ers without a problem. My 32 has similarly seen light offroad. The 125 oracle's are really only ~100mm flange spacing because of the disk anyway.

I'd say 100mm hubs are ample.

I have a 100, and it hasn't been an issue. With 48 spokes it is a plenty stiff wheel, i don't know that you would benefit much with the wider hub. Of course that's with a rim break. If you want an inboard disc i would go wide.

Not sure you can buy a 48 spoke inbound disk hub of any variety. Or are Qu-Ax disk ones 48 spoke?

No, the new Q-axle disc hubs are 36h.

The old QX-series disc hubs appear to be 48h.

Right, they are (I just forgot them).

Since we're talking about brakes, I think that the 32" wheel is a good candidate for a disc brake. I mention this because I have a rim brake on mine (Magura), and had to fabricate adapters to move the mounting points down to match the rim (I'm using a KH36 frame), and also to shift the brakes inward -- the Kent rim is narrower than typical uni rims, so the pads barely touched in the stock position. A disc would eliminate this mis-match. (That being said, there is nothing wrong with using rim brakes, they work just fine, just kind of a hassle to implement.) (See thread "Hot Rod Uni" for a pic of the adapter setup.)
Just a suggestion.
Cheers.

Thanks for the advice friends! I'm not using a brake, so 100mm it is.

The spirit cranks with disk work wonderfully on my KH (earlier in the thread).
Also makes things easier with the 36/32 wheel swapping.

Wrong rim?

I just got my rim from Kent. I measured the diameter at 700mm. Would anybody mind measuring your wheel diameter? My first thought is that I got the wrong rim. Since the tire is not here yet, I can't check it to compare, I can only measure the rim. Thanks in advance!

I just measured mine, and the major diameter is 700mm's. Keep in mind that it is the largest diameter, not the Bead Seat Diameter, or the "effective rim diameter" (ERD).

Right wheel

Thanks Jtrops. It's the right one. I thought I may need to run to Walmart and measure. You saved me a trip. I owe you one!

If you haven't seen it, take a look at the other thread here:

Rim ERD is 654.
