I have a 135x12 hope pro 2 rear hub. Can I get adaptors to make this 142x12? I think the answer is yes, but I also remember there being a few little caveats around this...
Thanks and please
If it was running 135x12 then surely 142x12 caps can be used.
The pro 2 12mm axles have very thin walls due to the bearings they use (15mm ID for the freehub). And were apparently prone to failing.
Pro 2 Evo use 17mm ID in the shell and the freehub so the axle wall is thicker.
Short story, yes I believe you can.
Long story, yes but don't be surprised if it fails. If you have a spare pro2 evo rear axle, caps and freehub you can swap it all out.
Edit: if you want to live dangerously, I think I have a set of pro 2 142x12mm caps you can use to test the theory.
