- Hope BULB QR conversion
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 🙂

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??Posted 8 years ago
you sure your hub is a bulb and not a pro2 ?Posted 8 years ago
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.Posted 8 years ago
They are a snug fit, try putting a bit of grease on the adaptor, mine was the same.Posted 8 years ago
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 🙂Posted 8 years ago
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.Posted 8 years ago
You need one that looks like this
The month & year of manufacture should be etched on your hub under the hope logo.Posted 8 years ago
I think my one has equal ends as per the first pic.
