    Any long term durability feedback on Rotaz hubs?

    Are they available for 15 mm thru-axle front and 142x12 mm back?

    I got two years on mine on one of my 650Bs. No they aren't available in 15 front or 142 back.

    I hate to sound like a shill

    But bike hub store has some of their light weight hubs with 12mm rear and 15mm front. Brandon is trying to stock conversion kits too.

    Front MTB Hubs

    Rear MTB Hubs

    He also stocks rotaz and I think he'd be glad to talk to you about them. He might even handle warrantee returns for rotaz.

    While recently looking for lightweight affordable 15mm TA front hubs I couldn't find anything other than this A2Z XCF 15 = 108.5 grams. It came with both 15 TA & QR end caps.

    Where did you find them?

    I've been looking for an inexpensive convertible front hub.

    I bought a pair from Yan Kelly. Rode them about two years (xc). Towards the last 6 months, the rear would occasionally (rarely) slip/pop when hammering hard. It was as if they would slip one engagement point, then carry on as usual.

    @nbwallace Hi, I bought these hubs!

    I just have an issue with installation of the cassette sprocket, as I described here:
    Installing Shimano cassette on BHS MTB252 hub

    Your advice is welcome!

    I am looking for a 15mm conversion kit for the Rotaz FD140 Front Hub. In your post from last year, you mentioned Brandon is trying to stock conversion kits. Do you have any info on how I can find a 15mm conversion kit for the Rotaz front hub?

    Thanks

    Just give Brandon a call.

    Brandon is very cool. I'd just give him a call and ask. I think you can get his number through the contact link on his site:

    https://www.bikehubstore.com/aboutus.asp

    You can email him too. He usually replies pretty promptly.
