Thru-Axles to QR?
#1
Hello,
I have some stock wheels that came with my bike (Spesh DT swiss ones), they have Thru-Axles;
is it possible to convert to QR for a different bike?
I have the kit for another set of Prime wheels, currently used as QR but allowing it to be TA - can you swap between wheel types?

Hi ImpPLant, generally modern free hub end caps can be switched out, almost all the brands that produce free hubs make sure their kits can be converted to whatever standard comes along, check if there are grooves on the end caps that you can shimmey out and replace with the QR ends
