Good value hub motors uk

Evening guys,
Been running my board for just over a year now and looking to build another board but using hub motors
I know of a few different ones knocking about but they seem to be predominately in the US and I’m over in the UK
So does anyone have any recommendations on hub motors which I could get in the UK, I’m not looking to break the bank, just something that will get the job done well.
Thanks in advance

Maybe meepo hubs? They’re about as cheap as I’d go, but at $175 for the back truck powertrain, surely belts are just the better solution

Good shout I’ll take a look
I found some cheap enertion hub motors without the urethane which I’m pretty tempted with but not sure what the general consensus with enertion is as it’s been a bumpy ride. And I have no idea where I’d get urethane that fits

Enertion hubs are a cesspit of issues, not to mention there is no real source for the sleeves anymore Neo jeff was going to make some but he ran off with peoples money, and so did enertion themselves. I would avoid them
