    Morning all.

    I have a Hope bulb front hub, and just been sent a QR adaptor for it (from 20mm), so i can build a wheel.

    one of these:

    Only issue is – the converter seems to be too long – even when it is threaded fully together, has ~5mm side-to-side movement.

    Do i need any spacers? Have i got the wrong adaptor?

    I’ve wedged it in the middle for now to build a wheel, but its far from ideal 🙂

    Cheers

    Looks like a BULB QR converted. What does it look like if you screw it right in outside of the hub and line it up – does it still look too long then??

    you sure your hub is a bulb and not a pro2 ?

    Is it a six bolt hub or is it a splined one with a lock ring?
    The adapters are different!!

    That one looks like the one for the older splined bulb.

    They are a snug fit, try putting a bit of grease on the adaptor, mine was the same.
    Measure the outside faces, it should be 100mm.

    Not sure how to make sure though. 6 bolt hub – looks like i have wrong adaptor

    It screws together fine and cleanly – runs out of thread – will measure it anyway

    Right…looks like I need the other adaptor then.

    Not sure how to check what hub/yr it actually is mind 🙂

    It could be a bigun hub converter, I have one that only fits the bulb with some spacers on the axle.

    Good luck getting it to fit.

    You need one that looks like this

    The month & year of manufacture should be etched on your hub under the hope logo.

    I think my one has equal ends as per the first pic.

    Balderdash 🙂
