- Numpty fork/hub compatibility question…
Apologies in advance for asking this, but I am to anything even vaguely
technical what George Michael is to responsible motoring.
I have QR forks on my hardtail at present, but want to fit some otherPosted 4 years ago
forks which are 20mm Maxle. The hub isn’t compatible, so would I be better
off buying a new hub or simply getting a whole new front wheel?mikewsmithSubscriber
Depends what you have.
It’s generally cheaper these days to replace the whole thing but if you have a nice low use rim then it might be good to swap. If you can get a hub that is the same size then you could reuse the spokes (if they are OK)
I would strongly advise getting a hub that can swap between 15 & 20mm to improve you ongoing compatibility.Posted 4 years agosimonhuscroftSubscriber
If its a particularly good rim that’s in decent condition that you wish to keep it might be worth getting a good wheel smith to build it up with a hub of your choice but you need to factor in spokes and labour costs too.
Otherwise you may be better off buying a full wheel be it pre built or hand built to order from somewhere and trying to sell yours.
Weigh up the costs and decide from there.Posted 4 years ago
