Default hub/rim for through axle frame help

Hello mga sir, im a newbie and building a new mtb for myself. I bought Merida BigSeven 1000 frame then sabi ng seller sakin its a through axle type 12x142. my problem is nabili ko siya sa store which doesn't carry shimano group sets and epicon brands. can you guys suggest kung saan ako makakabili ng hub and rim for this frame? Btw my original plan is to buy a slx hub but they told me that its not compatible for this frame. napabili pa tuloy ako ng thru axle worth 1.5k, do I really need it?

May nabibili ba na rear lang na hub? I will use epicon fork pala.. paano kaya gagawin ko kasi d ba pair sya binibili?

Also which is better a 32 or 36holes?

My budget is only 1.5-2.5k for both hubs and 800-1.2k for each rim.

Any suggestion? Help please!

Thank you so much!

ito ba?

if yes, yeah you need that rear hub. yan ang binili mo eh, so....live with it. regarding the number of holes, depende kung anong available sa 'yo. dati mas mahirap maghanap ng 32 holes dito sa pinas, pero ngayon nagiging common na rin yata.

regarding epicon....tapered ang frame mo. may tapered steerer na yata ang epicon, although may mga reducers namang nabibili. check mo na lang kung compatible yung front hub na kapares with the epicon for 27.5.

mmm.
may thread dto regarding custom wheelset and built wheelset...
but for me... magcustom ako pag available ang mga parts satin.
pillar spokes (kung available na ang 27.5 sizes)
and sa rim, kung available na rin satin ang da bomb 27.5 Rev rim

http://www.dabombbike.com/
http://www.pillarspoke.com/

OT. as far as i know kasama na lagi ng merida frame ang dt swiss 12mm axle. bakit kapa bumili? free na yan kasama ng headset at seat clamp.
hope this helps
