Quick question about KNOT54 wheels:
What hubs are those, can I convert to other axles in future? Or QR if I decide to use on older bike? I hope it's standart DT-swiss internals
Chaingobbler is right: The rear hub has normal DTSwiss 240 internals, including axles & endcaps, so you have all the DTSwiss 240 axle and endcap possibilities.
The front hub is our own design (to reduce size and therefore weight and aero drag as much as possible). We don't make any other endcaps, so it's always as designed: 12 mm through axle.
But please be aware: the rims are NOT rim brake compatible, neither from layup & resin perspective nor dimensionally. The composite rim has no rim-brake properties (no high-temp resin, etc.), and at 32 mm wide, I don't know any rim brake that could accept it.
Bottom line: enjoy the Knot 64 wheels as originally sold: awesome through-axle, disc-brake only wheels.
