    hub thru axle adapter?

    Hello - I'm going to have a custom wheelset built. Everyone seems to like thru axles these days but my frame was built for quick release.

    Thru bolt should work with my bike frame since it's the same size as a QR axle.

    I was wondering if it's possible to buy a hub designed for a thru axle but then adapt it to be used with a thru bolt?

    I was hoping that if I bought a new bike frame down the road then I could simply remove the thru bolt adapter and then use it with a thru axle at that point.

    Does anyone here know if something like this is possible?

    Changeable endcaps are offered by Stan's/ZTR, Hadley, Hope, DtSwiss, and other hub manufacturers. 9mm front and 10mm rear RWS thru-bolts from Dt should fit QR dporouts. Work up the cost of the parts you will need when you price hubs.
