I'm just in the process of converting my Hope Pro 2 Evos to 142x12mm . Daft question, but how do yu remove teh old QR endcaps.... do you just pull them, and any tips of tricks? So far I have managed to mark the 9mm bit of the old one, and pinched my finger with the pliers... blood blister forming nicely....
Fitting 142 mm endcaps to Pro 2 Evo
Pull old ones out - vice helps
Push new ones in
Try dribbling a little GT85 inside the cap to lubricate the O-ring that holds it on (they're incredibly stubborn when dry), and wiggling it off.A pair of water-pump type pliers are pretty good for this job, even better if they have non-serrated jaws to reduce marking.
They're off now, thanks. It took a surprising amount of force to remove the drive side one, plus a bit of wiggling as coatesy says.
