    Remove 15mm to 9mm QR adapters from hubs

    I'm trying to remove 15mm to 9mm QR adapters so that I may use a 15mm solid axle fork. I didn't put the adapters in, but from the images here it looks as though they just pop in.

    I read another post where a guy claimed he used a skewer and a mallet, but I can't think of how that would actually work since the skewer goes through without hitting anything.

    From the illustrations the center of the hub is open. You should be able to put the skewer in on an angle so it hits the far cap without going through the hole. Then just tap it to remove the cap.

    The caps stay on by a single 0-ring. Slight, angled tap with a mallet and it easily pops off.,
