I have a sunlite mechanical sidepull brake that I'll be using...

All I see is a hub and a frame, where's the wheel?

So you are going to use a rim brake vs a disc brake?

I want pics of you're first attempt at mounting this thing, make sure your parents are watching, it should be priceless

For now yes, I'll use the rim brake.

You can't see the wheel? Maybe you are getting old.

If I get real crazy about it, I may go with a UCM and some Sinz cranks. I think I'd probably have to get a Qu Ax frame to fit the 100mm hub.

I'll have pics, not sure if I'll be able to get video. My camera may be broken... I plan to mount the thing like a stallion and ride off into the sunset.

Whaddya think of the frame job?

Good luck with this project! I was skeptical about a freewheel on larger wheels but now I'm sure it can be ridden and it's possible the larger wheel will be a benefit. Every day I get a little bit better on my freewheel. I think you're stuck with rim brakes, however. Going the UCM/Sinz route will only stop your feet from going around (not the wheel). What size cranks are you planning? I find smaller is better. I use 114mm for my 26" and would probably try 125mm with a 36".

Doh! Duh, I'd need the disk hub for a disk brake. I scare myself sometimes...

I have 150's and 114's. I'll try the 150's first since that what I'm using on it ATM.

Can anyone confirm frame spacing on a QU AX QX 36er frame? I believe that's the only available 100mm 36er frame, but can't find any solid numbers.

I can't, but if you want quax for the disc tab, I'm pretty sure that those frames are unavailable without buying an entire uni.

I don't want the disc tab, I just want it for the spacing. I was looking at this:

I've seen pictures of a Quax 36 wheel in a KH frame so it seems like that would work. All the quax hubs I've seen pics of look like 100 mm. Of course you'll need bearing shims if you get a new frame, but those are pretty cheap.

So why not a KH? (I'm not faulting you here, I'm just curious.)

KH's are spaced to 127mm. At least the KH hubs are, so I'd assume that the frames would be too.

As far as I know, QU AX is the only one who makes a 100mm 36er wheel. I just need to find some solid numbers to support that.

I emailed, we'll see what they say.

Probably all a bit premature, seeing as how this may all be a failure.

The Moment hub and KH frame have 100mm spacing. However, you may have to swap over your Magura brakes or drill a hole for the sidepull brakes on that frame.

It's not a failure if you learn something. It's worth it just trying something that no one's ever done.

The frame looks fine, don't sweat it, I tweaked mine with arm power alone, no issues with alignment, new 32 wheel built and running, working on my second frankentire today

Hey, you do know that the Trike hub has 40mm bearings, right? If you didn't already buy some, you'll need bearing spacers to make it fit 42mm beaing holders...so order some fast or you won't get to ride

I want video, pictures are so yesterday, make sure it's low res so ican view it on my slow internet connection

You are so gonna fall on your arse! Try grass on a slight uphill, wear wrist guards...

I'm not sure if he does need spacers seeing as that's a titan frame.

Are you certain about that? I assumed it would be 100mm like all the other KH stuff since it appears to use the same hub.
