    I have a king earl rear wheel that came stock with a 135x10m bolt thru,does bontrager sell a 12m bolt through covert kit for this wheel.
    I also have a big earl and earl wheel rear,both of those are standard 10x135 q.r. wheels,can these be converted to 135x12 thru...
    I included a picture of my morewood mbuzi that uses a 12x135 axel....

    You should be able to build up soemthing there, and get within your budget, even with shipping.

    Or, the classifieds and ebay to see if anyone has something.

    No go with your hub as far as I know (although all the bontrager stuff is OEM, that is not really sold, so they make what they need to fit their frames and have no reason to give any tech info out to the public). I would think you would need to call Trek (and get a tech minded person on the phone) to give you a 'for sure' answer, but I would start saving you $$.

    135 X 12 is really an 'odd' size and thus not all mfg make a hub in this size. Saint, Hope, and Hadley all come in this size.....maybe something from ringle or formula for a less expensive option....start searching. If you buy a new hub, you will need new spokes and pay for a wheel build.
