stiffening up my rear end!!???? help required.
I have an old specialized sx 2004 and want to try and stiffen up the rear end.
Its a normal qr rear end. I am thinking of using a 10mm thru axle or 10mm qr axle (superstar style) can anyone give me any feedback as to the best option for this.
I have got a goldtech pro competition hub and the guys at goldtech have awesomely offered to machine it out to accept the axle for a v reasonable price.

Chainreaction do Fire Eye 10mm QR’s the same as Superstar – back in stock on 15th according to their website.Posted 5 years agosteviedSubscriber
Can proII hubs be converted to 10mm thru axle?
Yes but you need to change the whole axle: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=18761Posted 5 years agoDaveyBoyWonderMember
I doubt very much you’ll be able to convert a SRAM hub.
I ran a SS 10mm / Pro2 rear on my old Santa Cruz Blur. Made no noticeable difference at all. My theory though is that it’d make a lot more difference on something either like a Heckler/Five (something with a long single swingarm) or something like the OP’s SX (something with a pivot near the rear axle). I have no engineering evidence to back my theory up but its my suspicion!Posted 5 years ago
