    Need help with axles/forks upgrades

    Im going to upgrade the forks on my 2012 trance x4, most probably with fox talas 150,
    however the axle required for this fork is the 15QR setup, will i have to change my wheels to suit?

    also if i get a 15QR wheelset, will the rear wheel still fit the frame? or do i need to get a 9mm rear and 15 front.


    Thanks in advance

    oh and what wheels do i want to look at, strength for jumps and drops is of importance.

    My understanding is that it depends on the hub you have. Hope Pro 2 hubs for instance are convertible from 9mm to 15QR with a simple conversion kit. Other hubs you may not be able to convert.
