squish is good
Most of those hubs you've listed are just 20mm hubs that have different spacers so they can do 15mm. There isn't much weight savings to be had at the hub in that case. And 5mm QR skewers sit inside of a 9mm housing that interfaces with the fork so I'm relatively certain the testing was done with the standard 9mm setup and not with a RWS system. I don't think any of us think this standard will go away on it's own. It only will if the market sees it for what it is. Heavier than 9mm QR and not significantly stiffer... I don't know how you see it but it seems silly to me.Black RONIN said:Just one thought about the Cycling News report: regarding the 15QR being better or not than the regular QR, or a more efficient alternative for the current TA for lighter and stiffer forks, Fox IS a very influent company and WILL make it work anyway. Most companies are already adopting the 15QR in their new lineup of Trail and light AM bikes, so the trend is up and going. Mavic already realeased new models with both 15QR and 9mm, and DT have changed the front hub spec of their outstanding EX1750 to 15QR, leaving the 20mm version out of the picture, and now even CK is jumping right into it. Hardly it will become a dead standard from now on, with all these efforts to make it happen. Honestly, it seems like a good idea on paper, but if I had to choose from 15QR and TA, I'd seriously consider TA. If you wanna hard beating forks, then go with the strongest. The 15QR will probably replace the regular QR in 5 years, but won't cope with all the things a true 20mm axle can handle.
