Does anyone know where I can find a 14mm front hub? I want a bigger axle because I feel like I would trust it more. Are they just done away with?

You are lucky if you find one. you need new forks though. I think profile makes them.

I have a fork that will work, but I didn't think to try to find a wheel that would work first. It was a pain in the ass to find a fork

Odyssey classic dirt is a good fork in 14mm, but there are absolutely no new forks with 14mm dropouts.

Just get a female front hub... up front it would be just as strong as a 14mm male.. and I guess since you got 14mm dropouts just run 14-3/8 adapters (peg adapters).

I got the odyssey dirt fork new of ebay which was cool, I'll probably end up getting the profile hub and lace the wheel myself. Unless they have a complete with 14?

I garbage picked a nice Haro Backtrail four years ago and used the front wheel. Single wall rim with 48 spokes 14mm unsealed hub. Till this day im still running a straight axle and straight rim missing a few bearing as well. Here is my old Thread just look on craiglist for old custom bikes or something and part out what you need

Oh god that front wheel, I still have nightmares about it hahaha. I had a Backtrail x2 when I started, rode that front wheel for almost a year and since I knew nothing about bikes at the time, it went unmaintained.. so by the time I had to get a new front wheel, it made this awful grinding/cracking noise as it spun and was always loose. I always feared it was gonna lock up on me and send me over the bars haha.

i think everyone has rocked a backtrail at one point or another... and used their old backtrail parts on a custom when in need of something lol
