    9mm QR or 15mm Maxle

    I currently have a MC fury with a Rockshox Sektor RL Dual position fork with 9mm QR. When riding all mountain, I do notice some flexing with the QR on my fork. My question is, would it be worth while to upgrade to a 15mm Maxle fork and upgrade my front wheel to a 15mm maxle?

    If you're getting flex, it's worth it to upgrade. As good as a Sektor is, a Sektor with 15mm axle is better.

    Dunno if you have already upgraded, but you can just get new lowers for your Sektor instead of a whole new fork. I just did the upgrade (but with a SID) and it's so much better.

    The RS service guides tell you how to replace them.

    The only advantage to qr/9mm is cost or if you have parts already (which is another way of saying cost).

    Whether it's worth it to upgrade existing working parts is debatable, if you are buying new it would be a mistake to get open dropouts.

    If you plan to upgrade anyway get a 15 front and a 135 or 142x12 maxle in the back (if it can be converted) together with a proper set of wheels.

    I upgraded to a rockshox sektor rl with 15 mm maxle lite along with the 15 mm maxle lite front wheel. And wow, I can really feel the difference.
