I'm about to buy some custom wheels from Merlin's Cycles (unless anyone has a reason why I shouldn't), and I need to know what measurements to get for my bike and to accommodate a future frame/fork upgrade.
I currently ride an Airborne Zeppelin Elite with 9mm QR front and rear (double check for me? Airborne Bicycles. Zeppelin Elite), but in the future I may want to increase my front axle size by getting a new fork and also I will probably be upgrading frames at some point. I've heard about the benefits of having a maxle up front and that sounds like a good idea to me.
Is there any way I can upgrade to a maxle type hub and use it with my 9mm QR on the current system through some sort of conversion temporarily?
Also, what dimension of hubs should I buy?
You can check out all the dimensions here: Mountain Bike Disc Wheels | Merlin Cycles
Just click the front/rear Hope 26" wheel links.
Thanks so much!
