    This may be a dumb question, but... does anyone make a front hub that can be used for both a 10mm QR and with a 20mm axle?

    I have a set I picked up from a bike shop in WA state. ;)

    BikeWorks of Lake Stevens. Sealed Bearings Fr is 10mm QR/20mm thru convertable. and the rear is Convertable also but I am not sure. I think it is 10mm QR/12mm thru. He builds LOTS of wheels.

    Give him a ring....

    I have his contac info linked on my sig, I :think:

    Give them a call and ask for Scott. It will probably be him or his sons answering the phone.

    hate to say it:
    SuperGo Launch FR

    according to one guy at SuperGo they are the exact same wheels as the Outlaws, just silver instead of black. I've never tried them and don't know anyone that has but they do look pretty nice.

    the supergo and the performance loco wheels are the same thing as the azonic outlaws at a much better price. i have been riding a set for a while now and they are a very good wheel set. also they are alot cheaper than the azonic's

    Good to hear, that's the first review I've ever found of those. Every few weeks they drop them to $129, a seriously killer deal that I passed up many times.

    Anybody have any info on this?
    I have a Hadley front QR hub that was built in july or august of this year. I would like to convert it to 20mm if possible.
    I set the QR wheel next to my 20mm wheel (hubs were built in the same batch) and the 20mm hub is much wider in diameter. Does this mean no, or is there still a conversion kit for this?
    It is laser etched with: "H500210 R5.0

    Do the supergo hubs come in 150x12? Atomlab makes some adapter that you can put in any 20mm hub for use w/ stanadard qr sqewers.

    I just looked and they can't be because the Outlaws are 36h and the Supergo wheels are 32h.

    Just curious. People have mentioned DT Swiss, but a convertible front hub was not listed on their site or in Quality.

    I delved deeper, and I found that the Hugi FR hub has caps for 20mm and QR. Is that hub convertible?

    Dude give it a brake...they have not made hubs for years and the promise of manufacturing them again has been floating around since they ceased.
