    Found a good deal on an intense branded Hadley built wheel. It's 12mm but I wonder if I can convert it to 10mm for qr use. I'd check their website.....I'll call tomorrow if I can't get a quick easy answer here.

    what's the width? front / rear?

    chances are the answer is yes.

    135 mm? If so there are plenty of conversion axles. Just picked up a Ringle 12 to 10 conversion axle myself, pretty nice.

    New-ish Sun Ringle product. Was on CRC, but not sure of status now, they tend to sell out quick. Pretty light for a conversion axle, esp compared to the Azonic cro mo bolt on one.

    That's why I went with that option, too. Got an inexpensive set of 12X 135 ADD wheels for das endurpo/trail bike, was happy to score this axle. Also have a problem solvers (or was it Action wheels?) 12 to QR conversion axle, but it looks a little iffy, not so stiffy.

    EDIT: one tip, order that axle as soon as it is available. It sold out in a day last time they had some.

    Yup, I just switch over a 135 x 12 to a 10mm bolt on as well. I've been using balle racing for Hadley.

    http://www.balleracing.com/Hadley/Hadley_Hubs_Rear.htm

    Erik at Balle was great to deal with. He made sure I got the right conversion kit and tools to work on my hub. I'd highly recommend him.

    yeah, ballesack racing is definitely the best substitute for an actual website when looking at radley parts. I'd do the conversion, but it looks like it would cost a bit more than the axle, and may require special tools. The ringle axle is like $20...

    Ya, the conversions aren't super cheap, especially if you go with the ti bolt on! As for the tools I was able to get away with just buying a 21mm wrench for $11, but you could also just grind down a cheapo 20mm cone wrench if you wanted to.

    I ended up going with the conversion because the ringle axle never came into stock and I couldn't find another aluminum one.

    Sammich! CRC has those Ringle conversion axles in stock. Strike while the iron is hot!
