hi guys, sorry if this has been answered somewhere else but i couldn't find the answer. basically my forks blew up, but i want to try to keep my halo sas front wheel, which has a diatech (i think swinger?) hub. can it be converted to 20mm? if so where can i buy the adapters?

cheers, Guy

Im not a mechanic but i think it wouldn't work. you see your hub is 9mm which is a bit too narrow for 20mm axle. You can buy a new hub tho and lace your wheel to it.
Cheers,

ah cheers mate, but you can remove the whole bit that holds the qr axle, and underneath there's a 20mm hole Smile got the adapter now so should be good, thanks for the reply though

The difference between a 9mm end hub and a 20mm is more than just the axle/bearing size...its also the spacing on the end caps... which is 100mm for a 9mm axle end (or QR15) and 110mm for 20mm axle ends.
