I have 2 rear QR Hope Bulbs that I would like to convert to 10mm bolt on to use on my Six Pack. Is this currently possible or has anyone done this in the past? I know that Hope had kits to convert to both 10mm and 12mm thru axel. I haven't talked with Hope yet and my searches haven't turned up any NOS kits

EDIT: Sorry man I misread your post...didn't read you asked for a kit for the Bulb

I don't know if there is such a kit

Yeah, Hope is great they repaired the one Bulb I have, which was five years old for free, no hassles. I'm going to call. I have been servicing the hubs on my own and I'm familiar with how their assembled. I found an old thread about using a Atom Lab step down axel, 12mm to 10mm, but it seems they have changed the design of it( not sure though). Azonic makes one, but it is a threaded steel axel that uses BMX nuts. I ordered one since it was only $15 and I think it will work if I knock out the QR axel.The inner diameter of the caps is 12mm.

There is no 10mm conversion kit for the Bulb. However you can use the 12mm Thru-axle kit and use a step down axle. I have a NYC Freeride step down axle in one of my Bulbs.

Salami,I thought( I could be wrong) to convert Bulbs to 12mm all you had to do is remove the QR axel. Thanks for your help.
