- RS Torque Cap converters
My new bike has a Sektor RL fork fitted that has the ability to run Torque Cap fitted hubs. The wheels it came with are own branded standard 15mm boost hubs, which although I know are perfectly fine to use without Torque Cap ends area PITA to fit as lining them up is an absolute bugger.
I’ve also noticed that there are a variety of converters for standard hubs, e.g. SRAM’s own, Mavic, Halo to name a few but they all seem hub specific, so does anyone produce a generic converter to fit on the sleeves that the bolt goes through?
Or will one of those above do the job?
I guess an alternative would be asking a friend to 3D print a couple of spacers to do the job as they’re not load bearing but I’d prefer proper alloy ones if possible.

Cheers folks. It’s a GT Sensor so i’m guessing it’s something like a Joytech hub.
I’d seen the Newmen adaptors and could knock up something like that myself, thanks – I’m guessing that’s the kind of thing you’ve done Brian? Appreciate the offer though.
As I don’t intend swapping wheels over anytime soon (it’s my only 29er) I’m looking for something I can fit to the wheel rather than risk some self adhesive coming unstuck – probably just being paranoid there though..Posted 8 months agodangeourbrainSubscriber

I was of the same opinion so bought a bag, as is mine even survived
pressuregentle washing for 12 months so I’ve still most of a bag left.
In honesty the only benefit of adapting your wheel is it’ll fit quicker, I don’t think anyone outside of sram would be able to tell you of another benefit with a straight face.
Once the wheel is in place the adapters don’t do anything so not really much issue if they fall off.Posted 8 months ago
