- standard 9mm QR
Earlier in the year I bought a Revelation 426 (140mm) using standard 9mm QR dropouts as I could not justify the cost at changing my hub/wheelset. I know that the bigger axles are stiffer etc but is anyone still in the traditional 9mm camp who ride hard on trails/XC?Posted 10 years ago
hope in my experiance and riding buddys experiance are most likely to come loose.
they have poor "over cam" and tend to come loose , i did my first puffer on hopes which were done up extra tight exp after the first time they came loose. Descending flat out to find out your front wheel doesnt feel connected anymore is scary !Posted 10 years agophiljuniorMember
It's getting hard to come by QR equiped forks at the more fun end of the market, but until I find a pair of forks I really want that forces me across to 20mm axles I'm fine riding QR in the most gnarly way known to man.
Oh and second the Shimano skewers. Only really discovered this when I bought a slot dropout SS and needed something that really clamped well. Even the older ones that look a bit basic (well, sh!t.) work well.
I have wondered if part of the stiffness of 20mm most people feel is due to skewers not clamping up as tight as they might be and allowing a bit of extra flex.Posted 10 years agokimbersSubscriber

Well Crc used to stock a NC-17 9mm axle, but can't find it listed now. I got a Specialized one, from their concept store but otherwise you might try:Posted 10 years ago
