20mm front hub

ok here is the situation... I found what looks to be a great deal on a set of Sun ABBAH disk hubs laced to F219 rims. The catch, the front hub is a 20mm axel hub, and my bike does not have a 20mm fork on it. Should I just pass these up, or is there an adapter? or should I just buy the wheels and then sell/trade the front hub and replace it? Thoughts? Also what do you guys think about these hubs, especialy the rear one. MTBR has no reviews on them.

There are no adaptors that work.

I think you should pass on them. Then, PM me, and let me know where the deal is, so I can buy them.

No seriously, if you decide to pass on them, let me know(PM Me!). I'm actually on the hunt for a lighter wheelset for those more XC oriented days. I've got some Mavic D321's laced to my hubs, and I want something strong, but lighter. The F219's would be perfect.

Thanks

Yea, Ill post here if I pass on them, but untill I do, no details
If I did get them do you think I would have any luck selling/trading the front hub? I dont mind taking it out and rebuilding the front wheel on my own. Could be a fun winter project.
