I have been riding my 650b converted 2011 Camber for just over 2 years now and am happy with it for the most part but has 2 issues: I can only fit one type of rear tire due to the seatstays arch and the bottom bracket heigth which is too tall for my liking.
So I am looking to purchase a 650B specific frame and transfer as much as possible of the current parts I have on the Camber. Most if not all the 650B frames have 142 x 12 rear hub specifications and my current wheel is 135 x 10, so this is an item I will have to change. I have been looking for several hub options but I have noticed there is no clear information on whether the axle is included with the hub. This would be my first time using 142 x 12 so I am not certain whether the axles are part of the hub as with normal QR hubs, is it frame specific (as with forks) or the axle is a generic item that shall be purchased separated.
Any help is apprecited, thank you
