Ayeee fella's, i just swapped my BMX for this.
[LINK TO IMAGE]
Frame: 2010 NS Capital
Headset: Odyssey Internal
Forks: 2010 NS RNS 2
Front Rim: Sun Rhyno Lite
Back Rim: Sun Rhyno Lite
Spokes: Front-DT Competition (Double butted)
Rear- DT Champion
Front Hub: Proper Magnalite V2
Rear Hub: Odyssey Hazard V3
Tyres: KHE MAC 2
Brake Lever: Odyssey Monolever Left Medium
Rear brake: Odyssey Evo 2
Brake Cable: Odyssey Linear Slick
Pedals: Fly Ruben Graphite
Cranks: Macneil V2 conjoined
Bottom Bracket: Demolition Spanish
Sprocket: Proper Magnalite 23T
Chain: KMC K710 Superlight
Bars: Gusset Open Prison
Stem: NS Quark
Seat: Federal Slim SL

And, i REALLY don't like the rear hub, now i'm a bit scared to replace this hub firstly because of frame spacing, as i'm not sure if i can just chuck any BMX hub on here?

So, does anyone know what hubs will/will not fit this frame? And lastly, where can i buy new spokes? Any MTB Mailorder sites i should know about?

Well the trade isn't exactly going to plan.
Turns out i'm gonna have to sell my bike then buy this MTB. Which will be easy enough if someone had a spare $1200.

Some additional specs on your bike - http://nsbikes.com/2011/frames-and-forks/capital.html

It's basically a big BMX.

Well you're in luck, i went and saw the guy today (To pick up the MTcool and he said that something had come up and i can no longer trade bikes. Sucks for me, a lot. But i still have my BMX so it's all good and i shall return to Vital BMX until another MTB comes up, hahaah.

True that.
Reason i wanted one is because i've seen a few guys convert from BMX to 24/26" and they all thought it was much better being on a MTB. I just wanted to try it but i guess the bikes i like are a bit too expensive for me, ha.
