I was so certain 190mm was the shizzle I jumped on it so early that I might have shot my self in the foot. I purchased the hadley set back in march. Hadley is a royal pain in my ass, after having been going round in circles with their receptionist for months and later finding out that nothing happens until Fatback say so I am stuck waiting for what will happen. All of this sudden buy early was to get a wheel to custom frame builder in for fitting etc.
So that was my back story, here we are in the present. I now sit with a qr15 fork but a qr9 hub hoping there would be a conversion kit or something. I made my decision real early based on bike rumor info that hadley was on board for XX1, which of course is nowhere near as available as I had hoped for,
Now my bike is finally done, What do I do now?
1. Build a 29+ wheelset buy the fork of many names hoping this combo works use this until the snow really hits, hoping by then my hadley dilemma is solved. or ride 29+ rigid.
2. burn my Hadley qr9mm hub buy a new front hub rebuild wheel. retain borealis fork.
3. sell existing wheelset and buy a whole new set of wheels? just to not waste more money on wheel builds/rebuilds?
4. Since I am having so many front hub issues go the lefty path and I guess at that point sell my borealis carbon fork? rebuild wheel and oh yeah torch the Hadley qr9mm hub
