After converting a front hub to 9mm bolt through see here:

viewtopic.php?f=41&t=267291

I thought I'd have a go at converting a rear hub to work with SuperStar's 10mm through axle:

This conversion was a bit more involved and the first step was to design a new axle:

Which I then had machined up for me by Cofa:

Below is the custom axle along with the SuperStar axle, some new bearings, a little space that I also had Cofa turn up for me, and 2 end caps which I go from UK Bike Store:

I then used a couple of sockets to press in the new bearings:

And inserted the new axle:

Refitted the FreeHub:

And done:
