    Converting 9mm rear hub to 10mm

    Need some help here. I have a wheel set that I am trying to use on a bike with 10 mm drop outs. The rear hub is currently a shimano Viam 9 mm QR and I want to convert it to 10 mm. I have taken apart the hub and I know I need to replace the cones as well as the axle. Is there a conversion kit out there that will accomplish this or do I need to do this piece by piece? Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated. If it is to much of a pain in the azz, I might just get a new hub and rebuild the wheel.

    your rear axle is already 10mm's. just thread out the hollow axle and thread in the solid one...

    Make sure the replacement axle is the same diameter and thread pitch.

    If the existing 9mm axle is threaded, you should have a couple of bushings threaded to screw over the ends of the axles, then have them turned down to a 10mm outside diameter. Then you won't have to swap out axles or bearings, or anything else.
    This election is like a turd in a bag on your porch... whether its a blue bag or a red bag, it's still a turd on your porch.

    the shimano rear qr axle is a 10mm axle, it's just not a bolt on...
