hub dimension diagram
This hub comes with caps to fit either 9x135mm QR forks or 12x142mm thru-axle forks. Note that the hub uses a "front" disc brake rotor offset (compatible with newer Salsa forks, not compatible with any Surly 135mm forks to date) and the diameter of the axle stubs on the QR caps is a nominal 9mm (rather than 10mm), making this a "front 135" hub that fits newer Salsa forks and some others rather than a "rear 135" as used by Surly's Pugsley and Moonlander forks.

HU8888 will convert this hub to 15x150mm, but it requires re-dishing the wheel because the width change is not done symmetrically otherwise the disc rotor would not line up properly. Hope addresses this issue differently by using symmetrical conversion endcaps and providing a rotor spacer and longer bolts to move the rotor over the correct distance and allow axle width conversion without redishing the wheel. -Karl
