    New rear end on a Tranny

    More of a question for Hans but is there any chance you could make a rear triangle for the Tranny that has a 142mm bolt through rear end.

    Just converted both my Chris King wheelsets to 142mm for my SL-R. The thing is I'm now looking at getting a Tranny as a second bike and as I sold the parts to took off the I needed to buy them again now.

    An alternative would be for Ibis to design and build an entire 142mm production rear triangle so i can keep my wheels.

    So, what do you say?

    This would be a heck of a lot easier if the CK hubs just took adapter cups instead of having to swap axles...but still, you're saying you've got two wheelsets..why not just keep one with a QR/10mm rear, the other with 12x142?

    tdotrider - I did have the normal CK hubs with fun bolts on my SL and got the adapter kit to make them 12x142 when i got the SL-R. I sold the old axles thinking that I wouldnt need then again.

    Now I want them back its a bitter pill to swallow as I got 25 on ebay for them (about 80 if i want to buy a new set)

    Moral of the story = don't sell anything (ever!)

    Lesson well learnt, it's XMAS in a few months, treat yourself to some more newness. Think of it as an investment.
