I really like that JTEK hub! Rolls nicely compared to stock. Not with QR though. Prefer to keep it with the axle it comes with.Brompton already make a QR front hub
SJS make their own too
Seriously difficult with a Kojak or standard Marathon too. That's the only thing I didn't like. Lived in fear of puncture on that rim.If you plan to fit Schwalbe Marathon Plus tyres, be aware that these and the Sun CR18 rim found on the SJS wheel are a tough combo when it comes to remove and refit the tyre for p*nctures etc. It can be tricky, even with the right technique.
Yes, that makes sense. Good to know. Thank you.The "Hubsmith" one I bought from the Bay of Thieves came with a matching allen key skewer. FWIW, cartridge bearings and QRs don't always play nicely. Sometimes the action of the QR puts shear across the races, which makes them stiff and will massively reduce their life (putting a QR in a Goldtec track hub means the wheel barely spins any more). The hub must be designed for a QR, with the outer locknuts pressing on something screwed on, rather than the bearing inner race.
Plus QR really not required when a 6mm hex-wrench will do. Just so much nicer!Yes, that makes sense. Good to know. Thank you.
