    American Classic 9/10mm Thru axle??

    Hey guys, I have a set of American Classic Race 29s and I have all the parts to make them QR, 9/10mm thru axle or 15/12mm thru.

    I have been using them setup with QRs because of my frame and fork, but I just installed the 9 and 10mm thru axles and noticed that the right side dropouts both F and R are setting on the threads of the axle. Everything tightens up well and fits great but I really dont like the way it sets on the threads. Seems like the axles could have about a 1/4" less thread and the dropouts would set on the smooth part of the axle like the left sides. Is this normal?

    If none of this makes sense I will take a picture and post it.

    It only sets on the threads on just one side.

    I have the same hub but use a different through bolt / 9mm QR. If it fits tight I would say you are ok.

    Yea it's tight, just don't really like it setting on the threads like that. Doesn't seem like it's right. Maybe I'm too picky.

    It's OK - you're not using those threads anyway.

    It's never easier - you just go faster.
