Hub conversions?

With Maxle lite and the 15QR hitting the shelves do you think that most companies will have a conversions of existing hubs to run on these?

Sounds like they just use the current 20mm hubs for the maxle and some sort of a conversion system for the 15QR?

I'm half thinking of upgrading my wheels and want a certain amount of future proofing. Hope's ProII has a conversion from QR ro 20mm so I'd presume that they would do a 15QR too for example. I'd like to think that Shimano would do something like that for their XT hubs?

    You'll just have to wait and see. In all honesty I think that 15mm axles will die a death. Maxle Lite is 20mm anyway, just a lighter version of Maxle!
