Really helpful, Eric - thanks!
I’ve been trawling the inter webs to see exactly how the little block works and it does seem likely that for that alone you’d what your caps to match how they are on a KH + schlumpf set up.
Here’s hoping this comment on Florian’s site means there’s a new more universal option/method beyond or in place of the torque block system:
New technique of twisting protection (eliminates the risk of slipping with titanium frames or insufficient tightening torque, as well as the risk of damaging the outer ball bearings if the tightening torque is too high).
However it seems like a 100% needed component in the hub purchase - frames that will easily work with the hub’s bearing interface. With an inboard disc being the stand out feature, and this clearly not an option on existing KH frames - it must I feel/hope mean, that the hubs working in other frames should be now aimed and being plug and play
I’m leaning towards the idea of actually just getting the no disc option for my intended new 24” GUni build - and run that in my KH24 frame + Maguras. I never anticipate needing the disc really for that wheel size - and something about not having a dished wheel on such a small size makes me feel that the Schlumpf hub’s longevity will be maintained a lot better. No idea for sure but with its proprietary rotor set up, for such a small wheel space, I’d feel it could be overly complex. I do like maguras for the simple fact they don’t touch the hub flange and are entirely rim focused for their drag.
For the likely G36” wheel I’d now 100% opt for a Flansberrium frame (unless we hear dramatic news from Schlumpf HQ) as I’d be sure with a Frans frame it would fully take into account the necessaries to run a Schlumpf hub in it - not to mention they look amazing!
Two extremes 24” and 36” seems dime and the way to go - one portable, one for distance cruising. Disc on the 36er also seems worth it for the gear’s speed
