comment Suspension Fork Axles
That's great, thanks. Indeed I would much rather spend on just the fork rather than a new hub.

It's braking power (although it does squeak - that doesn't bother me!). With my V-brakes I could shift my weight on to the front of the bike and be able to lift the back wheel by pulling the front brake, but my discs don't have the power to do this..

It's the Shimano BR-M485.
