I am currently using the 135mm QR alternators on my 2014 el mar.
I love the way it rides, but I am building up a little better wheelset. I have an xt rear hub that is 135mm, but I am wondering if I should go for the 142 TA?
Hopefully before too long, my rigid fork will be 15mm through-axle, and I was thinking about switching to 142 TA in the rear.
Is there going to be a major difference in the rear end compliance? Has anyone made the swap? I love that the rear triangle rides so smooth, and I don't want to compromise that.
Basically, is it worth me getting a new hub and alternator plates, or just stick with the 135mm?
