Can a X-9 Sram thur axle front hub be converted to a normal skewed hub?
It should be......IF you can find the parts. I knocked mine out today to see what's up with the internals. It's a different system, that's for sure. But the hole is big enough for up to 20mm thru axles for sure. Finding the parts is a whole other beast though. Maybe your LBS can find them. I'm gonna inquire with Universal tomorrow when I go down there.
Old thread revival... I want to purchase an X9 20mm hub and put a 9mm thru axle in it to use with my existing fork. The idea would be that when I replace the fork I can go straight to 20mm. Is this possible? (I'm not interested in doing it if I have to use a 9mm QR, only if I can put a thru axle in it).
Have 2 data points for this thread: 1) I converted a 20mm X9 to 15mm with new axle, end caps and bearings using the parts # from the X9 exploded drawing & part list. 2) by fluke, I found this kit on pinkbike from a guy who tried to use them to convert a 9mm x9 hub to 15mm and found it didn't work on that hub shell
