Hauck Spacers bring new hope to  Hope Hubs!

hauk 135-150 solo spacersFolks that have plans to purchase a new Bluto and have Hope Hubs, should perk up and take notice! Our new amigo, Steve Hauck, out in Montrose, Colorado makes a sweet set of precision machined spacers that will allow you to convert your 135 mm spaced font hub to the Bluto 150 mm spacing. Right now the Hauck Spacers are specifically designed to work with Hope’s Standard Front Disc Spacing hubs. Steve is looking to expand his spacers to work with Salsa and other hubs as well. This means that you don’t have to buy a new hub and build a new wheel to get a Bluto to work on your fat-bike! That’s if you have a head tube that is made to fit a tapered fork and your front hub can be converted to a 15mm thru-axle. Some of you deep thinkers out there are probably saying, ‘What about the disc brake spacing?’ Every set of spacers comes with an offset disc brake mount. The Hauck set-up does require the use of a 180 mm disc rotor. If you have questions about your particular brand of hubs or anything else about the Hauck Spacers, you should contact Steve. The spacers and offset brake mounts are available at the Hauk on-line store.

Steve is the owner of Hauk Bicycles and they’ve also built some of the brightest colored fat-bikes that I’ve ever seen!  Steve calls his fat-bike the Foxtrot. Montrose is close to all kinds of CrAzY GOOD mountain bike country! Places like Fruita, Crested Butte and Telluride possess the kind of terrain, that make fat-suspension earn its pay. We’ll save doing a full builder profile for another day, but you can see a great selection of photographs of Steve’s work at the Hauk Bicycles Web-site – www.hauck-bicycles.com

Just an old cat that rides bikes, herds pixels, ropes gnomes and sometimes writes stories. I love a good story.


  1. Awesome. I know salsa is coming out with an adapter but it would be cool to get them from a smaller outfit.

  2. Remember that your frame also needs to clear the extra width of the forkcrown. The Bluto hits the downtube on the Yampa in size M and smaller.

    • Ya, I spoke with my LBS this aft and they told me it it was a bad idea lol. I called borealis…they said the yampa would handle just fine in Lg and xl.
      I’m wanting to build a 29+ wheel set, so it’d be nice not to have to worry about two new front hubs.

  3. Hey Steven,
    Did you all end up making the spacers for salsa hub? I am reading a thread on MTBR that I think is saying your parts were used and wheel comes out straight. No dish needed. How much are they?

  4. I would like to buy a Bluto fork for my sasa beargrease bike that has hope pro 2 fatsno hubs. My hubs must be the earlier version because from what I’m seeing the spindle in the hub will not accept the 15mm axle. The spindle in my hub has a 12mm bore. Do you also make a spindle to go with your 150mm x 15mm conversion end caps?
