This Nimbus Drift Trike Disc Cotterless Hub is specifically designed for Drift Trikes with the added option to use a Disc Brake. It is a square tapered free wheeling hub. This hub can be installed on a unicycle for a much bigger challenge, of course you can cheat and use the Disc Brake if you are not up to the challenge! (Please be careful as it is very difficult to stay on the unicycle with this type of hub installed).
This Nimbus Drift Trike Disc Cotterless Hub has the mounting for cranks like a unicycle hub, but unlike unicycle hubs, it is a freewheeling hub. This makes it a perfect hub for a Drift Trike or Penny Farthing. This hub has a lightweight aluminum body mounted on a steel cotterless spindle which makes it ideal for a front wheel. Disc Brake Compatible as well.

Just what I was looking for

Still getting pieces together to build my wheel with this hub. I'm super excited as it has the freewheel built-in along with the disc brake mount. Should be a blast when I get my drift trike up and running.
