    9mm qr fork with a 5mm qr wheel

    Hi, just wondering if I could use a fork from Specialized Bicycle Components on a Boulder 1 (Black) (2012) | Giant Bicycles | New Zealand. I know the fork will fit on the bike but I don't know whether it would fit the wheel. The wheel has a 5mm qr and the bike the fork comes off has a 9mm qr. Will this affect it in any way?

    A 5mm qr skewer goes through a hollow 9mm axle which is attached to the hub.

    The front wheel on the Boulder will fit on the fork on the Specialized and the front wheel on the Specialized will fit on the fork on the Boulder.
