Writing about my 2010 Mach 4.
Upon removing the rear wheel today, I found that the threads in the frame which secure the hanger bolt to the frame are stripped!
The 10x135 I-9 bolt-thru axle holds it all in place - probably has been for a while - but obviously I want to fix this.
On my '05 SuperMoto and '07 El Guapo, as well as my wife's '05 MotoLite, the hanger bolt is attached via the typical male/female chainring bolts.
I'm thinking I may just ream the threaded hole in the frame/dropout from its current 8.5mm to 10mm and slide a female chainring fitting in from behind (keep it clean, fellas), thus creating the exact same setup used by Titus.
Any comments? Suggestions? Warnings?
Thanks a bunch!
