    thru axel on 07 stinky?

    i measured the standard dropouts, they are about 9 mm in diameter. it would look with a tiny amount of shaving perhaps a 10 mm thru axel would work on the 07 stinky. anyone converted the stinky to a rear thru-axle? just something i was thinking about.

    I converted my 05 coiler. Should work the same. The standard QR is 10mm. Most TA are 12mm. I just got a step down axle for my outlaws. It was like $15 on pricepoint. Used a 12mm axle and stepped down to 10 on the ends. I have also heard of people drilling out their frame to accept the 12mm. That would probably be the stronger option, but a little more work.

    The 2007 Stinky Primo came from the factory with a rear thru-axle - maybe you could just order a set of the specific Primo parts from your dealer and convert with very little guesswork?

    a 10mm axle will work fine.
