    New question here. Jet9 with 10mm rear axle - anyone using?

    I guess its that time when I haven't spent any money on bike stuff - lame eh..

    I have Hope Pro II hubs (QR rear and 20mm front) and was thinking if there is anything to be gained by going to 10mm rear.

    Hope has the conversion kit and I was thinking that with a DT 10mm QR..

    Anyone using this setup?
    Waste of time and money?

    Regards

    Running the DT Swiss 10mm thru-bolt on all our Niners.
    Jet 9 with I9's, Air 9 and One 9's with Stans 3.30's.
    Works great on all of them.

    I'm also running the DT Swiss RWS 10mm thru-axle on my Jet 9 RDO. I've got Hope Pro 2 EVO hubs, so it just involved pulling out the old end caps and putting on the new 10mm end caps. I put 10mm on when I built the bike, so I've never ridden it with just a standard QR, but I feel like it was worth it.

    I am, as my wheels were already configured in that way that I put onto the Jet.
    Rolling on 29", 650b, 8.3" and 23mm

    Me too.

    My new fork has arrived and the bike will soon get its first ride with the DT Swiss 10mm skewer.
