Yep, you'll need these:

The QR ends unscrew then you pop the 20mm ones in place...

...although you'll probably find the bearings will stick on the QR adapter rather than in the hub and might need a little persuasion to come off.

Just realised that links to a discontinued item, but that's what you need! Unfortunately the only set I've got are in use.

Have you tried getting in touch with Hope direct? If they have been discontinued they'll either have some lying around, or at worst you can get a list of dealers to ring around.

it seems to me if you call hope direct about their older parts you in a polite way get told to FO, so I've been told my other people, so that may not be the best option! :lol: 8)
