This is a fantastic hub which has a variety of uses. You could quite easily use this on a XC mountainbike, a hybrid, a touring bike or a commuting bike...

It is fully compatible with 6 bolt disk rotors or you can use rim brakes.

The box includes everything you need to use this hub - once it is built into a wheel of course! Also included is a 8 speed twist shifter. This makes the XRK8 amazing value for money when compared to the Shimano Alfine for example.
