i've been looking at hope pro II hubs and i thaught, at first, that it was a standard hub that you could fit either a QR or 20mm axle to. but this website i found:

seems to suggest you either buy the QR hub and get a 20mm conversion kit or you buy the 20mm hub and get the QR conversion kit. is this true? and if so which one am i better off getting, will one be stiffer than the other?

    same hub you just order it with the spec you want. a kit is available to convert it at a later date.
