    Rear axle DC12 E-thru Tune.


    I am owner of a BMC TE01 hardtail 2015 frame and would like to know if I can put the rear wheel axle?
    This bike wears 10 * 135 and i have wheels 12 * 142 DT Swiss XR 1501, the Tune says that axle E-thru DC12 with adapter his doing for this frame.
    Nobody knows?
    Has anyone tried it?

    The frame determines is you are able to change your rear 10mm quick-release to a 12 thru-axle. It appears from the BMC website that the dropouts on the current model frame are not replaceable. Many companies do offer replaceable dropouts so that they can accept a thru-axle, BMC does not appear to.

    I am basing this info off the photo and information on their website:
    Teamelite TE01 29 Frameset - Mountainbike ? BMC swiss cycling technology

    BMC frames that do accept 12mm thru-axles use the Shimano "E-thru" axles. We make axles that are compatible with 12mm thru-axle BMC's so people can use them with their trailers or on resistance trainers. They will fit only BMC frames designed for thru-axles, which yours appears not to be.
