Can i fit a QR wheel on a front fork with 20mm through axle?
#1
Hey guys

I am looking for a new front wheel to replace my buckled wheel. I have seen a very nice looking wheel with quick release but my fork has a 20mm through axle (see attached picture of my fork). Would the wheel be compatible with my fork?

Thank you for your help.

no.

I would get a new rim and spokes, and re-use your original hub.

Agreed - entirely incompatible. Front hubs especially cannot be adapted to through axles. You bought into a new standard when you purchased a through axle equipped bike.
