    chris king one piece axle compatability

    hi guys

    I need to know what axle i can fit to my rear chris king iso hub to suit my nomad carbon. ive looked on the net and i think that the one piece axle should work also the heavy duty axle and the 135 x 10mm axle. can i fit a 10mm dt swiss bolt qr through all of these hubs, mainly the one piece axle as it is far more versitile.

    thanks

    From reviews, those ratcheting (DT) thru-bolts suck. If you're going to run a 10x135 TA, just go to balleracing.com and order yourself a Hadley TA. The HD axle that uses the Fun Bolts might be an option too. But the Fun Bolts use an 8mm hex. So, make sure your multi-tool has one first...

    What he said. Using on on a King hub on my hardtail, no problems whatsoever. Another on a different bike in a Hadley hub, has also been in a Hope.

    If you want a tool free set up, then yeah, go for the DT RWS 10mm thing.

    yes. as with most of the hubs that can be converted, you just have to get the right bits.

    Scroll down - you need this:



    Axle Rear, 135mm x 10 Thru


    Universal Cycles -- Chris King Hub Small Parts

    They are OOS, but I'm sure you can get it somewhere. Was an easy swap on mine.

    Yes, that is what we've all been talking about. You need the part in my post above. If not in stock anywhere, try King direct.

    10x135 thu axle with a 10mm thru bolt, can't us Fun Bolts - no threads.

    135mm Fun Bolt axle can't use a thru bolt, AFAIK, as the threads would be in the way.

    Pick which you'd like to use. They are fairly easy to swap in and out.

    Take a look at the pic on the right of this page - visual of your axle options.

    what i cant understand is how the threads are gona be in the way as the tapping drill for m12 threads is 10.2mm so there should be clearance for the 10mm bolt to go threw. when i ordered a 12x135 in the past they sent me a 10x135 hub by mistake and it had the qr endcaps in that were removable.

    I have no comprehension of what you're trying to say w/ the tapping drill being slightly larger diameter than a 10mm diameter thru axle.
    But w/ respect to the end cap, they're used for preloading the bearings. You can buy various length end caps to satisfy 130 (road) or 135 (mtn), and I believe even 142 these days (not 100% on this cause I think it's a BS standard to placate the XC dumbsheits so they don't feel left out)...?

    You won't be disappointed with the fun bolts. I had it on my Nomad and they keep the wheel on real tight
