    15 mm Chris King Front hub to 9 mm T.A.

    Okay I picked up a set of Chris King ISO hub's the front is 15 mm T.A.
    My Stump Jumper Comp with a Reba RL fork is 9 mm Thru axle.

    Has anyone found a way to convert to 9 mm T.A ?
    And no Chris King don't make a conversion for it.

    My option's are:
    Get new lower's for my Reba and run 15 mm T.A.
    Get 9 mm Quick release conversion and run 9 mm QR.
    Or get different front hub with 9 mm T.A.

    Just thought I would put this out there in case some one has had same problem.

    Do you have the SD or LD front hub? The SD is convertible between QR and 15mm. If you have the LD front hub it is not convertible to QR.

    I know that this mavic brand, but they should work universally. I just got a set for my american classic wheels and it worked perfectly.

    I will have to check I'm not 100% sure how to tell the difference.
    I would rather not go the 9 mm QR option since I have a 9 mm thru axle now.

    For the price it is worth a shot.
    I talked to Chris King today and was told they don't plan on making a 9 mm thru axle conversion.

    I run a CK 15mm TA on my Stumpy Comp with a Fox 32 Float 9mm and do so after buying an adapter from a great guy on ebaY for $20. No changing anything on the King hub, just slide the adapter into the thru axle. Use your normal skewer to hold it on. Works great!

    Sweet that's what I needed.
    So this is just a sleeve that goes into the 15 mm hub ?
    I thought about having a machine shop making me one this is much cheaper.
    Thank You very much Oh My Sack
    MTBR never lets me down.

    No problem...just paying it forward. I found a nice DT Swiss hoop with a CK 15mm TA hub laced in that I couldn't resist owning. I came here to mtbr with the same question and found this ebaY seller.

    It's a nicely machined piece with 2 o-rings and the fit/tolerance is perfect. It has been working great for me.

    EDIT:
    He also has this unit if you're using a standard 5mm skewer...

    Yes I saw that when I read his ad.
    Seem's strange Chris King wouldn't make this seem's simple enough can't be any harder than making hub's.
    I've got $399 in the new set of hub's 28 hole but I couldn't pass it up.
    So this $21 extra I'm still ahead of the game.
    Now just have to order Light Bicycle Carbon rim's pick my spokes and nipple's and for around $1,000 I will have a decent carbon wheel set IMO.
    Save's me $700 over the Roval SL's I was looking at.

    My part from mtbtools on EBay came in today.
    Fit's nicely.

    Now if I get a front fork that needs a 15 mm axle all I have to do is pull out the spacer.
