Hope BULB Issues

edited October 2010 in MTB workshop & tech
I have just bought a Santa Cruz Bullit and got a conversion kit for my BULB Rear hub.
I have just fitted the wheel and have made a rookie mistake. The conversion kit is 135mm instead of 150mm and as such too short for the dropout spacing.

I have emailed Hope but is there anything I can do in the meantime???

Cheers for all ant any help !!!!!!!!!!

    what do you mean?

    you have a 135 hub that you want to fit in a 150 drop out? not possible.


    new hub needed.

    I am chuffed that the BULB can be adapted though, I have an old QR one on my old bike, good to know I could fit it on the new one if needed.

    No hardship if they don't to be honest, I just never knew the bulb could be converted.
    By the way, still looking for that horrible "chocolate", Nick.

    not really a conversion but a new axle and bearings and ends IIRC.
