    Fulcrum Red Metal 3

    So on Fulcrum's website it says "The hubs fitted are of the aluminium oversize type fitted with a 20 mm axle front and rear." But according to the spec sheet, the front hub spacing is 100mm and it doesnt show any 20mm thru axle hubs, only qr. Does this mean I cannot put a 20mm thru axle fork on them?
    What the hell is an aluminum falcon?

    The internal axle that the bearings run on is 20mm in diameter. The hole in the middle is smaller. Front hub is 9mm QR or 15mm TA. No 20mm TA.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    and Fulcrums don't do 12/135mm bolt thru rears as well ... only the 12/142mm.

    Well that sucks... Guess I"ll just get a handbuilt set with Hope Pro2 Evo's and DT EX500. Can't think of anything better for $520.

    Talk to Mark at Pro Cyclery on Charleston. They laced my Hope/Flow combo early last year, and I've beat the hell out of them. They're as true as the day I bought them.
