I wonder if we are going to get touring/trekking bikes starting to use Micro Spline hubs rather than Hyperglide at some point ? Currently you would need 142mm (through-axle) rather than 135mm (QR) spacing on your bike's rear dropouts ... but I suppose Surly is already there on that one ...
157mm is 'super boost'
There's a bit here, https://www.pinkbike.com/news/burning-q ... ndard.html there seems to be a bit of a debate between manufacturers selling people on '6mm extra is a really big improvement' and those saying 'no, you need 15mm more'
