TOPIC: Axle standards

Re: Axle standards 1 year 8 months ago #44371

axle standards are alot like wheel/bar/pedal/tire sizes/standards its mostly preference and riding type/style

anything more than pure xc riding can benefit from thru axle frames/wheels. i have a 20mm/135x12TA on my am bike and a 20mm/150mm of the dh bike. if i were to build another am bike i'd still run a TA in the rear, but probably a 142 or 135 x 10. no need for 15 or 17mm bearings and the associated weight penalty or cost of hubs. I would probably never switch the 20mm for DH use, but for an AM bike i think a 15mm is sufficient for 26/27.5 wheels, but 29" wheels i would keep the 20mm, theres alot of flex on the tall bikes.

If you really want to add stiffness where it counts, get carbon wheels. Specialized carbon wheels use dt hubs that come with axle adapters in most of the popular sizes. Lifetime warranty, 240 pound weight limit.

I've always used DT Swiss for the 10mm and the 9mm. I love the ratcheting lever for tightening. I don't think I'd use use anything else and that's saying a lot because I'm very picky about my bike stuff. Thanks E bay

What are the advantages of riding a mountain bike anyway?
Staying at home, lying on the couch is much more comfortable

Did you add a lopes link?

Its a medium, with Lopes link, black. Looking to get more out of it. If it had wear on it I'd condsider your offer. But the frame has 2-4ml of protective tape everywhere meaning there is not a scratch, cable rub etc anywhere. I'm sort of anal when it comes to keeping my toys looking new. I was considering councelling for it but they get 120 bucks and hour, I'll just buy more clear tape :-)

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
