    10mm x 135mm Thru Axle

    Are any of you guys using a thru axle for your rear? I'm thinking about getting one (http://www.balleracing.com/Hadley/Hadley10mmAxle.htm) to help stiffen things up a bit. I'm using a standard Deore QR now.

    Actually I am looking into getting the kit for my King. I run tubeless so having to change a flat isn't even a consideration. Seeing as I only get one a year or less.

    Yeah, I run a tank of a rear wheel/tire too so I'm not too worried about flats, but that Hadley thru axle uses a 6mm hex so I could still do a trailside change if I had to.

    What kind of hub do you have now, Hadley I am assuming? I would also like to go this route but no point in getting one for my Deore rear hub, i'll just wait till I get a new wheelset and then get a hub already set up with the thru-axle.

    That axle will not work on any Shimano cup/cone hub (ala: Deore). However, you can convert your Deore to a bolt on 10mm, pretty much the same deal as the Hadley. I've done this to several hubs, works great. good luck.

    I have an Abbah rear hub w/ a Deore QR. The website states "Fits Hadley and other 10mm hubs" so I'll give it a shot.

    You are talking about a bolt-on axle, not a through axle. They are not interchangeable.

    A through axle is clamped by the frame (or fork).

    A QR and bolt-on axle clamps the frame (or fork).

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Your Abbah is not a 10mm hub, it's a QR hub. The hub must have 10mm opening and passage "through" the hub. Here is a picture of what a 10mm through hub looks like, sorry for the poor quality.
