    Okay, found lightweight A2Z front hubs. Question about 15mm conversion

    Found some A2Z XCF32 front hubs, and I believe they're convertible to 15mm thru axle with Stan's 15mm end caps.

    Anyone confirm this.

    The version is the latest: small flange and tall flange.

    Hi,
    I got a set of A2Z hubs front + rear (XCFi/XCRi) like these here A2Z XCFi + XCRi komplet piast

    The front is definitely convertible to 15mm. I bought mine already converted, the problem is that end caps that came with the hub are not fixed to the hub itself. They fall out each time I remove the axle and take the wheel out.

    That's because the hubs have 15mm bearings and the end caps they come with reduce that to the 9mm ends normally. The conversion involves endcaps which are simply spacers to get the hub centered on a 15QR axle.

    Try some Loctite 609 Bearing Retaining compound on the end caps to keep them in place.
