    Easily convert a Lefty hub to 9mm QR

    Smart part, questionable use. It lets you install your nice Lefty front wheel on a crappy two-legged fork (or on your disc brake equipped cross bike)...

    With most according to them: Cannondale, Mavic, DT Swiss, Woodman, Monkey Circus, Progress, American Classic, Crank Brothers.

    The bearings are all the same and spaced the same on every Lefty hub (except those for the Lefty SuperMax) since they all need to fit the same spindle. The only thing I could think of that could differ is if a hub has a different cap design/sizing/spacing.

    It's funny- a while back, I was joking with some of my fellow mechanics that if someone ever got a hold of the truing stand adapters we use for truing/building Lefty wheels, that some moron would try and use it on their bike!
    Now it looks like someone actually manufactured a usable version of it. Pretty nifty!
    I may need to order one, so that I have the option to easily swap a rigid fork on to my F29...
    Thanks for posting this!

    So has anyone had success with this? I'm seriously considering getting one:

    I want a 29er wheel in QR and i have a spare 29er with lefty hub and arch rim....

    Also want to make sure that this will not be suitable:
