    New question here. Hub brands having convertible axle compatibility?

    What are some quality brands of hubs which have both front and rear hub which can convert to all the "standards" of axles.

    Front: QR skewer, 15mm, and 20mm, convertible hub with compatible forks.

    Rear: QR skewer, 10mm though axle, 12mm x135, 12mm x142, convertible hub with compatible rear dropouts.

    I think 12 x 150mm rear hubs are never convertible.

    Thanks!

    Hope Pro 2 Evo hubs can do all axle standards. The DT Swiss 240s front can, but the rear I believe does not convert.

    Thanks everyone... this helps narrow my search a lot

    And with maximum axle conversion hubs, I'm also interested in fast engaging, about 60 clicks of engagement per revolution or more. For safer rock climbing, pedal timing and back pedal ratcheting.

    Many good choices, but I'd give highest personal recommendation to Hadley. DT Swiss second only because of personal Hadley preference. Everything else third and I will only use if I get a killer deal on them.

    Are these for an Ibis, perchance?
