I currently have a set of Novatec D881/882 hubs with the thru-QR in 9mm and 10mm configuration. They are solid steel and heavy, and I can't find the alloy version easily. I have access to all the tooling and fabrication knowledge to make alloy ones myself, but no clue at all about the proper aluminum alloy itself that would be best for this application.
Could anyone tell me what would be a decent alloy for this purpose ? Its going on a XC bike with carbon wheels and I'm 120lbs with gear and very easy on the gear.
Thanks very much
