bolt on hubs with suspension

Any know if a traditional bolt on hub will fit a suspension fork made for a quick release? Thinking about buying a SE Racing Stout 29er if I can add a Reba or other suspension fork with the stock wheel.

It depends on if the front hub features a 9mm axle or 10mm axle. If it is a 9mm, it should fit just fine. If it is a 10mm, you might have to do a little dremeling of the lowers to get it to fit in the dropouts. I did this on an old Manitou Minute, and it was just fine. Just make sure to dremel evenly to ensure the wheel sits in the dropouts correctly.
It will work fine. The SE has a 9mm bolt-on.
