    All I hope is that Starling still do 142 back ends. I’ve been saving for a while and am nearly there.

    @sanername change your hub end caps?

    Yeah, changing rear hub width is usually simple. I’m still using my old 142 hubs in all my bikes

    Yep, even if you can’t get specific boost end caps for your hub a generic rear boost kit is about a tenner.

    haven’t Starling always said that whether its 142 or 148 spacing, your hubs should work, as the flex in the steel allows the rear end to bend to suit?! Just crank up the axle?! 😛

    You should see the price of their chain wax!

    That non-linear gauge has to be worth paying some extra for though…

     

    hmm, maybe not that much. 😁

    i’m not sure that they ever did. the last thing i remember seeing on their website is that 142 works with spacers. i used the simple washer type while waiting for my fancy kit to arrive. they are fine. order your frame as soon as you can!

    and from the pictures it looks like the bearings are now in the swing arm held in place by a pinch bolt. easy home maintenance.
