Looking for 36h 135mm SS QR hub

I've decided to build up a mountain/bikepacking bike with a 135mm wide front fork and hub (Salsa Enabler or similar). For ultimate paranoid tinfoil hat redundancy (against derailleur/freehub/RD hanger issues, all of which I've had before), I would like the ability to run a singlespeed disc hub in front.

I see that Surly makes a 135mm singlespeed disc hub, but they don't seem to make a 36h QR version, and I don't want to carry a 15mm wrench everywhere I go.

Does anyone have any recommendations? I would prefer loose bearing and about XT quality, but replaceable cartridges are okay. Dishless is preferable. It will be paired with an XT cassette hub.

For ultimate paranoid tinfoil hat redundancy I'd suggest that you use the same hub as in the rear.

I don't want a highly dished front wheel, though...

I've gone the other way, I bought a bike with a Surly QR SS disc hub, I changed it to a bolt-on axle. Any correct length axle will work (10mmx146mm?).

white industry ENO hub.

IMO, it would be easier to just have matching hubs and wheels, because then you'll only need 2 spoke lengths.
and MTB disc rear wheels are not highly dished like road rear wheels. They are dished, but it's not terrible.

There's a thought. How are the Surly bearings? Can they be serviced easily?

Also -- I'll be using Salsa dropouts for chain tensioning in SS mode, so no need for the ENO. It looks really cool, though.

there's a standard version of the ENO which accepts a QR and is not eccentric.

The Surly New Hub bearings adjust just like any cone/loose bearing hub.

Thanks! I will probably get a 36h New Hub and swap in a QR axle.
