    Front hub

    I'm looking to get a new front wheel soon here and I'm wondering what you guys think I should get.

    Well

    I AM going to be riding pegs.

    Needs to be 3/8

    I want to run a a gland on it.

    What do you guys think??

    gland will work any pretty much everything.

    there are very very few choices for 14mm in the front anymore.

    If you are thinking of getting a pre-built wheel then you can get a shadow or proper front wheel.

    they both come in a ton of colors and are both resonably cheap. not to mention both are plenty strong.

    If you want a sick custom wheel you can do an odyssey 7ka rim 36H with some shadow strait gauge spokes laced to a proper, or profile, or shadow hub.

    The marmosette hub looks a bit beastly. And I really want white to match my rear.

    I have the Vandero 1 on currently and it has always rolled smooth so I'll consider 2 for sure.

    I know people who have messed up profile fronts so its not gonna happen.

    And, what do you think of the Colony Clone???

    What about Demolition? You are always getting new parts.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    7ka is a 17 oz rim. that is very light. not to mention it is the front and you can get away with running a lot of weaker rims because it dosent take as much abuse. ever check out animal rims. they run about 15 oz and would be a perfect front rim

    Get a marmoset for sure. Something stupid like only 1 axle has ever broken. Such a solid hub, not heavy either
