Front hub education

915 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  JMKM
I'm looking at getting a new fork for the 29er and running an endomorph front tire. The fork thus hub spacing is limited to 100mm, but can I still run a wide rim/tire as well?

Know this is very basic for most here, but I just had to ask the dumb question. (Yes I did check the FAQ first and did not see anything right off)

Short answer = YES :D

Now for detail.

Do you want rigid :- 100mm spacing.

Thread here :-

and here :- please note Salsa enabler needs a 135mm hub.

Or suspension :- Mav SC32 or DUC 32. See the Werdnesday and Dark side of Pugsley Posts. Needs the dedicated Maverick Hub

Or move back to MN and go fat all around.
Also keep in mind the Enabler requires REAR disc spacing as well.
Enabler does require a rear 135 hub, like the Surly New Disc Hub. However, it will use your existing front disc brake. No funny business. Plain and simple.
