Ok, I'm having a bit of trouble here figure out the differences between the QR20 hubs and the 20mm thru axle hubs. Are the hubs the same, but use a different axle? As long as a person has the axle, will it matter what hub is used? I have searched online quite a bit, and I can't seem to find very much information on these. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

If a hub is designed for QR it will not accept a through axcel but a hub for a through axcel can be used with a QR. The QR is like any other qr but with a 20mm axcel. the Through axcel bolts on. If you use a 20mmQR on a hub designed for a through axcel you may have to buy an adaptor to get the qr to work. Marzocchi sells one.
Ok.. I have a dude that has a QR20 fork. I am to build him a wheel.. I was originally going with the Ritchey 20mm thru axle hub, but now I'm thinking it may be better to try to find a QR20 specific hub, right?
