I have a marin quake but the other day a twig bent the rear dropout and the mech. I decided to take the opportunity to upgrade to a 12mm maxle on the rear.
got the axle and the dropouts but its 150mm rear spacing whereas the standard 07 quake comes with 135mm QR hub.
Can the hub be converted from 135/QR to 150/12mm? I know there is a 12mm conversion kit but i'm wondering about the 135-150 issue.

Is it going to be a new hub/wheel?

    mmmm. The quake I've been drooling over had 150mm, maxle rear hub, and I'm almost certain it was standard.
    (I'm very tired, and may be mistaken)

    yep thats the 08 verison you're thinking of which does have 150x12mm maxle on the rear. I've got the 07 which is 135 QR.
