    Just out of sheer curiosity is it possible to convert a 10mm axle to a 12mm?

    Its possible, I did it to my '10 Mission many months ago hand havent died yet.... Im running Sun Charger Pro's and *thought* I was ordering a solid 10mm axle when I decided to convert it, but the part number they gave me was for a 12mm. So when the parts arrived I said screw it, and just made it work......

    But why would you want to void the manufacturer warranty? If it's not a 12mm thru- axle, for all intensive purposes a 10mm axle should be plenty stiff. I'm riding a 2011 mission 2, with a 10mm qr skewer in my Easton haven wheels, and feel zero flex from the wheels. There is flex in the rear triangle as a whole still, but a 12mm vs a 10mm by 135mm axle won't make a huge difference in that. I'm super curious to see how the new rear triangle on the 2012 missions (12x142!!!) is going to improve on the stiffness there. But unless you're willing to void your manufacturer warranty to try it, I'd say go with a 10mm bolt on axle. Just my opinion...

    Personally I noticed a lot of flex in mine, and I wanted to do what I could to reduce it. If it voids the warranty, I'm ok with that. I only say "if" because I'd hope that if there was an issue with the front triangle, DB wouldnt blame the dropouts. And for that matter, I'm hoping/assuming most companies wouldnt have an issue with anything unless I called them up and said my droupouts cracked. If any and every warranty issue I might have is void because of this, then so be it; I have already assumed that its my responsibility and I'm happy with my 12mm axle.
