- 10mm Axles – Options?
Just got hold of a set of Hope wheels and the rear is 10mm bolt-thru (old skool, standard spacing). When I’ve run this setup in the past I got a 10mm QR axle from Superstar but it seems they don’t do them anymore and the only other option I can find are the DT Swiss ones for £25ish. Is there anything Superstar-esque still (ie, cheap!). Even something bolt up, not particularly bothered about QR…Posted 1 month agokayla1Subscriber
If you’re feeling particularly rough you can just use an M10 nut and bolt. Stainless bolts are a couple of quid and nuts are around a quid. Bit heavier than hollow aluminium though 😕
edit- it’s probs best not to use threaded bar unless you absolutely have to (or want to be extra rough 😆 ) as there’s more chance of it failing along its fully-threaded length than a bolt.Posted 1 month agonwmlargeSubscriber
Novatec 10mm axles fit.
I got mine from this guy on ebay, he didn’t have a 10mm listed so I contacted him directly and he sorted me out.Posted 1 month ago
