So it has to do with ma front end. I have a single wall rim with a crappy 14mm male front hub. What do I uprgrade. The rim or hub.

Save up more money and buy a new wheel. It will save you money in the long run.

If you just upgrade one then you'll have to buy new spokes and pay someone to lace and true it for you (assuming you don't know how to do that yourself).
Then when you upgrade the other piece, you will yet again have to buy spokes and pay someone to build it up again.

Therefore new wheel would be cheaper in the long run.

I would just get this

$70, most rims/front hubs are $50-$70ish alone, plus wheel build costs too.

Get a decent 3/8 female double wall wheel (the cinema is cheap, I think theres a mission one too) and get peg adapters (3/8 to 14mm) so you can use them with your current forks until you get new ones.

Seeing as I should buy a new wheel entirely, I'll get one when the time comes. Most likely a cinema zx to match my rear perfectly.
