    QR to 10mm TA ????

    How do I convert my standard rear shimano quick release hub to 10mm Thru Axle? Is there a kit?

    I believe all you have to do is to replace the skewers with proper sized bolts, but I'm not sure.

    nope, chigau yo.

    here's a good example: http://www.unrealcycles.com/item.php?view=141
    but like zerosix said, you should be able to get one at your lbs.


    oh you know what, I just noticed you specified "thru-axle". As far as I know, that is not possible with a shimano qr hub. Unless you get a Saint. The above link I posted is for a 10mm bolt-on, which is just as strong and solid, but the axle is not free to slide out of the hub, once you rebuild the hub, it will be permanently in there...

    You can't do a thru-axle, but you can do a bolt-on.

    Nvm... BikeSatori beat me to it.

    It's about 10 bucks for the axle and 10 bucks for labor.
