    I’ve noticed a few racers using hubs on their front spindles.

    What’s the advantage and when is it worth one’s extra time & expense?


    I’m running  a 2013 Margay Brava, Yamaha KT100 Y-Pipe.

    When you want a slightly stiffer front end…or just want to use hub-mount wheels you might have lying about.

    As bill said the hubs tend to add a stiffer front end. But now most of the newer chassis run 25 mm spindles. Which they don’t make a direct spindle mount front wheel for which makes the you have to run the front hubs.
