    BMC Trailfox 02

    Does anyone have this frame? I wanted to know what size QR I will need becuase the frame is on order and I just realized I might need a new wheel.

    Is this what you're asking?

    Rear wheel: 135mm dropout to dropout spacing and usually a 10mm axle.

    Front: depends on the fork

    So a 9mm qr rear wheel won't work? It has to be 10mm?

    9 mm for the front , 10 mm for the rear . 10 mm is the accepted standard .

    all modern rear wheels use a 10mm axle, or an axle that reduces to 10mm at the dropouts. the diameter of the quick release (and the hole that goes through the axle) is pretty much the same on both the front and rear wheel.
