    Bluto for 2016 Farley 5

    I am wanting to add front suspension to my 2016 Farley 5. The hub specifications on the Trek website don't list the size. Is the hub 150 mm?

    Looking at the website, it appears the front fork is a quick-release, so you may need a new hub no matter what the original width is.

    The F5 is a 135mm Q/R hub. Do a search on this forum and you'll find more information discussing the hub. You'll either need to get a new hub or order from someone making end caps after market and space out the brake caliper accordingly.

    LBS quoted me a Bluto and a new hub, or just a whole new wheel assembly I case I ever wanted to switch back to my rigid fork. Thanks for the advice.
