    Can I use a through axle wheel on my 2006 Santa Cruz blur?

    I am looking at buying a rear wheel on craigslist but it has a 12x142 through axle setup. The guy on CL tells me there are adapters to go back to 9mm QR but, I wanted to pose the question to you guys - especially if you have personal experience with it (are the adapters a PITA or pretty much a non-issue)?

    Thanks!

    It depends on the hub. Some will be convertible among the different "standards," others won't be. What hub does the wheel have?
    Sometimes, I question the value of my content.

    It has a DT Swiss hub but, I'm not sure which one.

    most dt hubs are convertible. with them i think it is as simple as popping the old caps off and pressing in the new ones.
