seems like they'd be in the perfect position to sell a triple clam/hub combo that was engineered to fit one another, given a certain fork setup.

how rad would it be to build a new front wheel buy forks, triples, brakes, bolt it on, be done?

pricey, but easy. i'd love to have the braking but won't give up the spokes...

It would definitely be a little more costly (new hub, relaced wheels, triple) but would look like it was installed as a stock upgrade. Could you use the free spirits hub on the tubeless rims that avon or someone makes? That would be the best of both worlds.

Personally I think even the Free Spirits stock triple is a nice piece of kit that would improve the front end look. Having risers, i think it would clean up the front end and not look so cluttered (similar to the clip on triple) but with the cutouts to make it look more "engineered"
