Recommended Posts

I have a wheel with a Hope rear hub 15mm Thru axle that I would like to convert to take a Quick release system. Are there adapters that will enable this? What are the important criteria for this.

Hi Greybeard.. If it's on the rear it's 12mm... What model Hope Hub is it?

 

QR end caps are super easy to get hold of. You LBS might even have some in an old spares box or can order from International Trade.

 

But I think pro2, pro2evo and pro4 all take the same end caps for the rear....

I have a set I would offer you but I need them for a little upgrade I'm doing on the mini velo.

 

Which is why I reckon your LBS might have an old set lying around.

 

I would also place a wanted ad in the classifieds. Like me, I'm sure there are people with a spares bin of unused/obsolete parts.

Hey guys, are all these adapters the same? Found a set of thru axle wheels that will work well for a build I am busy with but my frame and fork are QR

No, they are hub dependant, so you need to get what is compatible with the hubs

Nope. Although mavic makes ones thar are supposedly close to universal. I think it’s more a case of they work on some other non mavic hubs too.

K@k advice.

If it's not a Hope converter, you're probably steering the OP down the wrong path with bad info.

Hope QR end-caps work with Hope hubs

It wasn't for the op. If you bothered to read two posts up you’d understand lol. He was asking if the there was sych a thing as a universal converter kit. And as i also said....it probably wont work regardless ????

You can buy something like this - worked for me just fine for a while (eventually I changed the hub to a Hope option, not related to the adapter performance)
