As above, can't find any relevant bits on CRC or elsewhere, no answer from Sun Ringle (yet). Suspect it's not possible but anyone know for sure? Ta.
Sun Ringle Jumping Flea Hub - conversion from 12mm to 10mm / QR possible?
Posted 3 years ago #
Bump for those sitting at home watching the rain come down.
I think so.....
The drive side bearing should fit the qr axle
However Not sure about the non drive side......
I've a load of parts lurking in the garage and will have a look later to see
Think you would need an axle and one end cap as the non drive side differ between hubs....
I assume it's a 135mm hub.....
The answer is yes you can......but......
You need a 135mm we axle....
New non drive side bearing..... Needs to be same ID and width of the dirty flea hub but with OD to fit jumping flea hub shell
End cap to fit 135mm axle....
Problem is that the end cap will have the correct spacing ... But the outer diameter will not correctly shield the bearing..... So bearing will only have minimal protection... Would be possible to cut down a hope 10mm end cap to work
Hope that helps
Rob, yes it is a rear 135mm hub. I was hoping to just find adaptors to replace the 12mm ones already on it.
You need a 135mm we axle....What do you mean by 'we'
I've tried fitting Hope & DT Swiss QR adaptors but the problem is (and this is without checking the width & position are correct) the non drive side adaptor is push on but the drive side adaptor is screw on. The axle has a thread on that side and so whilst you can push an alternative adaptor on, it's not 100% solid, there's some sideways movement there.
grumpy, thanks, stock due end of May & I've bookmarked it.
[What do you mean by 'we']typo.....oops
just meant you need a 135 mm dirty flea axle... + the dirty flea has a screw on end cap/ adaptor
I've an axle ansd endcap I'd be happy to sell although I think [grumpyrs] suggestion is the best / simplest option.....
It would work on the drive side but the non drive side we axle has a protrusion to go into the dropout + the diameter of the outside of the spacer is smaller than the bearing so it won't shield the bearing
Ah I see, I'll wait for the link grumpy posted to come into stock then. Thanks for your help.
