    Am I right in saying that maxle is the same as bolt through where the bolt screws in to forks, and QR is a skewer that uses a qr lever to free wheel?

    Can you convery bolt through to QR?

    Thanks

    Which are you wanting to convert – Fork or wheels?

    Forks you will need new lowers, some wheels can be converted with adapters and some can’t!

    You’ll need to clarify what you want to do!

    It’s possible to buy converters for some hubs, e.g. Hope, but not all wheels are created equal so not all converters fit all hubs.

    Have a look on eBay. A lot of people are getting rid of their Hope qr adaptors as they go for the ‘better’ 15mm/20mm maxle options. I think mine were £2 posted in the end.
