    Does anyone make a front hub that has a bolt up axle and 6-bolt disc ready?

    Would prefer cartridge bearings but not a deal breaker if it’s ‘cones and balls’.

    Thanks, I’ll check them out.

    Hope and Superstar both do adaptors for their fronts… What are you after here? You can get bolt-in “QRs” for any QR hub too but they don’t do anything different to a QR really, apart from being lighter and fractionally harder to nick.

    I’ve not seen the adaptors from either Hope or Superstar. If they exist then a bolt up Pro II would fit well with the rest of my wheels.

    I’m after a front hub that you bolt in place rather than anyform of quick release. At a push I would use a ‘security’ skewer in a quick release hub but I’d rather start off with a bolt up hub.

    The Surly hub looks ideal but is £60+ which, although not a fortune, is more than I’d like to spend.

    Hope and Superstar’s adaptors are for a full-thickness 9mm axle so you would have to add your own axle to suit.

    That’s not a bolt up option that’s a though axle. Does anyone do a 9mm bolt up through axle?
