So, here some more information about your questions and remarks:

1. I did not apply the brake when this happened
2. The bearings did not move on the axle. They are where they have to be. What moved is the red aluminum part on the axle.

But I am not 100% sure how the hub is assembled. I will of course not disassemble it.

I will see my dealer in some days. I guess he will send the wheel back to QU-AX.

Just one thing I would like to say because of new "developed" products. This hub system is for unicycling quite new. And I think the guys at QU-AX have tested what they could. But it is always a bit a risk when buying a complete new product. Even in the automotive industry this happens you get a product with problems. This is normal and happens. Not cool, but if you want to get products which are affordable, this is the way it goes...

So we will see what QU-AX tells me...

I saw that coming, UDC had a few issues with their Disk hub when it had the aluminum flanges pressed on the steel spindle. The reason why some Kris Holm hubs are so creaky.

Please let us know what happens! I'm really interested to read more about the Q-axle. I had my first look at it today! It looks really nice, I'm just hoping this is not a bad move for unicycling.

I am sure QU-AX will improve, if necessary. But maybe I got a "bad" hub, that can happen...

cant wait to get back my 29er ....

I was at my dealer. He replaced me the whole wheel, this means everything except tyre and tube. All brand new out of the box! And, additionally, I got a new fork! My dealer (not sure if I am allowed to post his name) and QU-AX, many, many thanks for your outstanding support!!!

QU-AX will take back the wheel and analyze it. Then I will get feedback.

As soon as I have assembled my new joy-ride you get pics and a short report....

But first the snow has to melt! Here around Zürich no way to ride, at least for me as beginner... 30cm and more is too much ARRRRRGH

First ride with new wheel and fork. Now the wheel is centered in the fork. No noise so far. It is great, awesome!!!

Only point, the white color is a bit different than the old fork and the 24", it is a bit more yellow / beige. But that is really no thing.

Now I hope the noises stay away. The screws on the cranks were not tightened, as well as on the old one... I tightened them with 12Nm, according Shimano crank installation document
I posted it allready here

is there any chance that a Q-Axle/hollowtech 2 version of the lightweights will eventually emerge?

What would be be the maximum tire width for this frame? Would it take a 2.7er or even a 3.0er?

Which tyre exactly do you mean? As far as I know the only 29x3.0 ist the Surly Knard and Surly Dirt Wizard, which I guess has as well 3.0 wideness.
I don't think it will fit. But zack28 seems to know it...

I was thinking of the knard when speaking of 3.0 and of the dirt wizard when speaking of 2.7.
I'm planing to take this frame for my next build and want to use the Maxxis Minion DHF 29x2.5. (think this one will fit .. (or not?)). Hoping that the 2.5 Minion on the 47mm KH rim will have nearly as much volume as my 3.0 Duro on my 38mm Qu-Ax rim. But it would be nice to have the option to go bigger ...

The Dirt Wizard should be around 72mm wide on the KH rim

I was talking about the Knard 29x3.0 as well, but are you sure there is a Dirt Wizard 29 x2.7?
Anyway, according to 'wendino' the problem with the QX frames is not the width, but the length, so you shouldn't have any trouble fitting the Minion.

Ah ok, only the 26er Dirt Wizard is 2.75, the 29er is 3.0.
