    New frame under warranty.....142x12 upgrade?

    So my 2010 frame M1 cracked where the bellcrank mounts to the downtube. So far (replacement frame not in my posession yet) lbs and DB have been great. New frame is supposed to be shipping out today.

    Im happy to get the newly designed frame with the 142x12 rear axle BUT my old wheel was QR.....so what would be the easiest and/or cheapest way to make this work? Do I need a new rear wheel or can my hub be converted? Ive looked but cant find any relevant info although Im sure its there I cant find it lol. Thanks in advance.

    These are the wheels

    Not relevant to your question but will the new frame only have a 1 year warranty?

    I would call FSA and get their advice.

    I assume the replacement frame would be covered under the remainder of the original frames warranty which would be over a year (5yr total) but Im not sure. Thanks for the suggestion Ill try fsa tomorrow.

    Well, got the replacement frame from DB! 2013 mission pro frameset. Couple issues though.

    1. The rear axle setup - it did NOT come with the actual axle itself....so anyone know which one to buy?

    2. My rear wheel will not work - called FSA and confirmed. What rear wheel should I go with?

    3. They changed to a larger diameter lower cup on the headset so I need a new headset as well.

    Pumped on the new frame but sort of disappointed I have to spend a good chunk of change out of pocket just to get riding again.

    Thanks for any help you guys can offer.
