but this is a real question that kindof makes sense. i have a front hub its sealed and 14mm. its old-ish so its setup kindof different that other ones. like theres the hub shell and you can see the bearings. then theres 2 washers on each side then the locknuts. no cone nuts just little locknuts.
i thought of these 2 ideas on how to convert to 3/8.

IDEA 1:
get a 3/8 axle and 3/8 locknuts and 2 washers and these things. and use the old bearings and put those adaptors on them and put a washer outside each and then the locknuts.

IDEA 2:
figure out what size bearing and find 2 that have a 3/8 hole instead of 14mm.


would either of these work? if both would work which do you think would be a better idea. i kindof wanna just try the first and see if it works, cuz this hub doesn't really matter to me lol

are you talking about making your 14mm hub into a female hub?
