yeah, it totally makes sense that if the internal diameter of the shell is the same, then you can use the TA bearings and endcaps. i didn't even consider that was a possibility until i saw this thread.
but, but, but... how do you get the qr axle out? support the shell at one end and bang the axle with a hammer at the other?
For the rear hub you don't need to remove the sealed bearings, only get the appropriate end cap for your frame rear spacing. You have options for QR, 142mm Thru Axle and Boost (148mm) Thru Axle.
Novatec has also a similar system with their 4 in 1 hub models that can be adapted to different frame/ fork specs only replacing the end caps.
