    2013 Remedy 8 Rear Axle

    I am trying to find out what size the axle is on a 2013 Remedy 8. The precious year used a Shimano 525 hub, but all I can find out about the 2013 rear hub is that it is a Bontrager sealed bearing hub. I looked at the wheel itself and cannot find anything indicating the size. I do not know enough by sight to tell the size. I have been looking for hours on the Internet but haven't been able to find it. HELP!

    Standard rear axles for open dropouts are 10mm. Fronts are 9mm.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Comes stock with a 10x135 QR however the QR skewer is longer than average in order to fit through the ABP system. They are also convertible to 12x142.

    Ok, 10x135 is what i thought it was. In order to convert it I assume I need the ABP convert kit from Trek? Thank you all for the info.
