HALBOT- I need a nice 15mm thru front hub, the WI looks like a good potential option.
Does anyone know:
-Is the 15mm thru axle version actually available yet, in centerlock?
-Give Commuter a call perhaps?
Loving the fact the pricing is reasonable AND they do a silly amount of drillings.
Just buy a Hope Pro2 Evo or DT Swiss 340 both are excellent, light front hubs and if you change your fork to some new wacky standard chances are you’ll be able to get adaptors for them. Either that get a new Sram inverted fork which comes with the hub included.
EDIT: scrap that last bit you’re still running clown wheels aye.
except for the bit where i said there was nothing “theomaretically” wrong with straight pull (followed by a large slab of text which i intended to be incomprehensible on the basis that it might make me appear smart)
anyway surely teh real question involves the available colours of ano does it not? (the answer is always purple AFIR)
I got a centrelock wheel, its fine. Is it better? Not that I know of. Is it better enough to justify having your choices of hub severly limited? Aboslutely no way. What do you think you’re getting out of it that makes it worth sticking with while forcng you to compromise on your wheel builds?
edit: SNAP with JICE! i wouldnt go centrelock for future builds unless there was a raging deal on them.
-i can put a cap over the spline and pretend my wheel was built for a touring bike with cantis
-slightly quicker installation
-limited rotor availability
-limited hub options AND availability
-no chance to FRO your bike up and use only 3 bolts
