Possible to use 15mm QR hub on a standard QR fork?
I found a nice wheelset on craigslist yesterday & knew it wouldn't last long, so I splurged. Like-new, Shimano XT hubs laced to DT Swiss rims, but unfortunately with a 15QR front hub. This won't work with the fork I'm planning on getting (RS Tora). I knew the front hub wouldn't work as-is before I bought it & the seller even made sure I knew it was a relatively new technology requiring a high-end fork, but for $150 for the set I couldn't pass it up. Oh, & I forgot to mention the wheelset also came with an XT cassette, XT rotors, & Panaracer Rampage tires.
So anyway, I'm just wondering if there's any kind of conversion kit that will allow me to use a standard QR fork with the 15QR hub. I know there are kits that do this vice versa, but have not been able to find any that allow backwards compatibility. And if this isn't possible--Anyone interested in a Shimano XT 15QR front hub?
