    Enduro 2009 - E150 forks

    Hi Guys,

    I've got an 09 Enduro Expert with the fox talas forks, which to be honest i've never really been a big fan of. Anyway desided to take the plunge and bought some E150's second hand.

    Firstly has anyone ever done this? I know one person has because i came accross the pic below while trawling google.

    What i really need to know is, are the axle's/bearings in the 25mm front hub (supplied with the E150) interchangable with the axle's/bearings in the 15mm front hub that came with the bike. Both hubs look identical on the outside and this would save me either having to rebuild my rfont wheel or having a rim that doesn't match the rear (vain i know!)

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    PB Matrix covered e150/25mm compatible hubs pretty well...give this thread a read:

    Thanks for the thred link, will no doubt prove useful in the future.

    An update to the hub situation - although externally they are identical, after taking both hubs apart i've discovered that the bearings and axles are not inter-changable due to an additional lip inside the hub on the 09 version!

    Gutted as this means a re-build.
