    New question here. Hope bulb hub & Shimano quick release skewer compability

    I ran in to a little snag with the combo mentioned above and hope someone in the know can help me out.
    Long story short, The shimano xt quick release skewer won't fit into the hub
    (its a 20mm Hope bulb w/qr conversion) neither does the Sun qr skewer I had laying around. So before I start drilling, Is the Hope qr skewer the only way to go with this hub's qr conversion kit?
    I thought that skewers diameters were all the same size.

    Ummm...no, you shouldn't have any....

    problem using XT QR's in the Hopes. I've got a set on my ride right now with the same set up. I would HIGHLY suggest that you give Hope a call before you start drilling ANYTHING. Those are too nice of a hub to be screwing up with half arsed fixes for problems that shouldn't be happening!!! Once converted that skewer should slide right in no problem.

    So DON'T DRILL, call Hope. There is something amiss here.

    Dunno about the front, but I'm using XT skewer with Hope Pro II rear hub.

    I've got a Bulb wheelset (convertable front) too and have run them with XT skewers with no issues. I echo what Squash said, call before drilling, something's not right.
