anyone purchased these from evans, ive ordered a set, on the evans website it says the front comes with the 20mm adapter but when i spoke to the staff in evans they said it did not. i only briefly mentioned it and didnt follow up on it, just wondering if anyone has ordered the wheels and if they got the adapter or not

    Hope front hubs come with QR and 15mm axle adaptors as standard. The 20mm converter is an extra.
  • cool cheers for that. this is the section copied from evans site im talking about.
    Quality built wheel using a DT 4.2d disc specific rim with black DT DB Competition spokes and silver brass nipples - New Hope Pro 2 hub with sealed cartridge bearings - Includes both 20mm and QR conversion - Rim tape and two spare spokes included - Disc specific wheel - Weight - 848g - Quality XC/Enduro wheel

    if they dont come with the converters any idea of the best place to buy them is. thyre not listed on the evans site.
  • Surely if they say on the site that the wheels come with a 20mm conversion, they need to supply one (assuming you bought the wheels from the site and not in store that is).
  • picked them up today.

    at evans at least, there are two types, ones with 20mm and ones with 15mm adaptors.

    i managed to get the 15mm set, needing the 20mm set, i swapped the adapters, but the hubs take one or the other so i have the wrong wheel right adapter. need another trip to the shop to get it sorted.

    for everyones info..
  • I'd check they're not overgreased as well. The one i played with in evans the other day sounded a bit quiet, i've played with a few brand new hopes and they aren't *that* quiet when new, it almost sounded like a shimano one!
  • above is wrong. i was trying to put the adaper in the wrong way. the hubs are all the same, onlt the adapters are different.
