    What QR Skewer to use on an JET 9 RDO v1.0

    What rear QR skewer are people using on their v1.0 Jet 9 RDO? I put on a standard 135mm XT QR and it seems a bit short. Not a lot of axle threaded into the not on the drive side.

    I use the DT Swiss RWS 10mm thru-axle on mine. My Hope Pro 2 Evo hubs were easily converted with the 10mm end caps.

    Hadley 10mm Thru Axle used with a CK hub using the 10mm axle. Works awesome!

    I use the DT Swiss RWS 10mm thru-axle on some wheels & the NC-17 10mm thru-axle on others.

    They both work good, I like the RWS more but the NC-17 is 1/2 the price.

    Good ideas! I have Hope Evo II hubs also. I am going to look into the 10mm conversion kit.

    yes, I didn't like the bolts Hope uses to tighten down the axle. The hex hole wasn't deep enough and didn't engage the hex wrench well so it made it tougher to really secure the axle.

    I use a Salsa Flip off. Works fine and seems to clamp plenty tight.
