    Giant PR-2 wheelset thru axle conversion

    I bought a set of wheels on eBay, the PR-2 wheelset from a Defy. The front wheel takes a 12mm axle though, and my bike takes a 15mm axle. Anyone know if this can be converted? Thanks.

    Okay, another idea. Is it possible to convert these to quick release? Thanks again.

    Yes, you can get an adapter for 12mm-9mm(through bolt qr) or 12mm to 5mm(standard qr). There are a bunch on ebay.
