    I have a front hub that is convertable for 9 & 20mm axles. Not sure the brand because there is absolutely no markings on it. I will post pics later to get some help on that.

    In the mean time... I bought this setup used and it was in 9mm form. I unscrewed the end caps and bingo it is now 20mm. The PROBLEM I have now is I do NOT have the 20mm end caps to fill out to 110mm wide. Once I figure out who makes it I can go to them for some replacements (hopefully). But for now I need to know if anyone has any clever ideas of some sort of material or tubing that has 20mm I.D. that I can use temporarily.
    Thanks

    i had the same problem with my azonic outlaw wheelset, you just need to hit the hardware store or fastenal and get some washers/spacers with a 20mm ID or standard equivilent

    Kind of what I figured. Nothing like a little stainless STEEL to lighten things up.:cool:
    Thanks

    BTW, it looks like the front is an Azonic Outlaw. Anyone know of the availability/cost of replacement endcaps?

    Thanks

    i dont know if they offer them. i bought my outlaw wheelset brand new and they were not included. just take a hacksaw to some aluminum pipe, and you have nice light spacers.
