    Hope 170mm rear hub - bolt on??....

    Anyone know if the Hope rear 170mm fatsno hub is able to be bolted on instead of QR?

    Searching only show the bolt-on kits for the other hubs, no info about 170mm version.

    On that note, assuming no, what's the longest QR you can get??....I think I'll need one in the 235mm range or so, maybe longer.

    Thanks

    I could be wrong but I think the bolt on hubs have a difference axle than the QR or TA hubs. Which would make me think that you can't convert a fatsno to bolt on.

    From Hope's FatSno product page:

    "With the bearing change comes a new axle. The old 15mm axle is now replaced with a 17mm version. This means total compatibility with Maxle and Maxle Lite (reg) 12mm bolt through."

    I thought you were wanting this: Hope Rear Hub Bolt-On End Caps > Components > Wheel Goods > Hub Small Parts | Jenson USA Online Bike Shop. I don't think thats possible as Hope doesn't make a 170mm threaded axle.

    Now if you wanted to get a custom 170mm x 12mm through axle made, that might be possible.

    Yah, that was the idea from the link, toss on new end-caps onto the fatsno hub & bolt it onto the frame.
    If my plan works, I will need to increase a 200mm QR + 35mm in length, so I was hoping I could just bolt-on and avoid trying to source a longer skewer.

    It is still in the initial stages though, just trying to get all ducks in a row

    Thanks for the assistance guys.
