    What hub fits the Marzocchi 44 micro ti with QR 15?

    I have a 2006 Iron Horse Warrior Expert that I am in the process of upgrading (brakes and fork)

    I would like more travel than the stock 100mm and make the bike slacker ( I am not worried about cracking the frame cause if I do it will give me an excuse for a new bike.

    I found this Marzocchi 44 Micro Ti Fork from Departmentofgoods.com

    Overall it seems like a pretty good deal, however, how expensive are hubs that meet the 15QR standard? I would like to stiffen up the front as it feels pretty noodley right now. Or should I just get the 9QR instead and not worry about it.

    You of course have to build up a wheel as well...

    You can get Shimano or Dimension 15mm front hubs for about $60

    Thank you

    Thank you for help. Ill search around for a 15QR hub and see what I can find. My quick search last night was only returning $200 results and I didn't want to spend that much.

    Of course Ill have to build up a new wheel. Probably not a bad thing I am sure my current wheel needs some help.

    Right now the front feels very noodle like. I have not ridden a 15QR does it make an actual difference?

    Super confused

    According to department of goods website (Marzocchi 44 Micro Ti Fork from Departmentofgoods.com) this fork uses a 110 mm x 15 mm QR axle. I assume that means it needs a 110 mm hub also.

    I asked the online chat with department of goods, they said that's correct I needed a 110 mm x 15 mm hub.

    I cannot find a hub that meets those requirements. I only see 110 MM X 20 MM.

    Are they wrong is it really a 100 mm hub that's needed?

    They are wrong, there is no such thing as a 110mm x 15mm hub. There is 100mm x 15mm or 110mm x 20mm.

    My guess is that they are a completely clueless wholesaler and nothing more...I can assure you the fork is a 100mm x 15mm dropouts.

    Thank you, that's what all my searching led me to believe. I just kept asking are you sure its 110 x 15 and they kept saying yes.

    However, given that no 110 x 15 hubs exist...

    Anyway thank you again
