    Im sorry guys. I tried a way around it. But i had to do it.

    I have to post a bike question.

    SO i want to buy that Saint Wheelset/Der. Combo off Jenson, and was wondering what I'm going to need to adapt the hubs to standard QR? Not sure if the Saint range is even convertible. I'm not going to be running them on an XC bike or anything stupid like that, just my frame and fork are QR at the moment, and the longterm plan is to be able to transfer everything on to a decent frame and fork later on down the track.

    I also understand i will need centrelock rotors, or an Avid adapter.

    Any clues on the wheels? You can have the dérailleur if you help and i actually end up buying it

    not swappable. 20mm front, and saint axle rear. keep the rear as is, and either get a fork with a 20mm axle, or use a different front wheel and sell the saint one. spending money on funky adapters (i don't believe any exist to turn saint wheels back to normal QR) would sorta' help to negate the good deal on this wheelset anyhow.

    better off either getting wheels you can run, or taking the money saved buying these wheels and sinking it into a 20mm fork.
