I would like to convert a pro 2 rear hub to a 12mm, u can get one right?
Yep, I've converted my rear axle.
I say 'I' converted, the bike shop done it when I picked up my new frame, it takes a bit of hammering:
It can be done without the correct tools though.
Aye, quite easy to do if you can operate a hammer- it's basically the same process as changing the bearings.
Buuuut, do be warned, the 12mm axle isn't very strong, it's machined too thin. If you run it on an axle that doesn't offer it a lot of support- tapered maxle lites especially- it's likely to snap. Not ideal really but I just get on with it, I've got a spare and Hope replace them quickly on warranty as they know they're too weak.
arrr right cheers, have to get one as it comes with the mega frame
