    Scale Drop Out. Can it be changed to 142X12?

    I have a newer Scale with the 135X5 through axle....Just wondering if I could run 142X12 if I get a better set of wheels in the future?

    If so? Do I need hardware?

    Thanks.

    Also, is there a way to adjust where the 135X5 Handle rests after you tighten it? Currently mine sticks out the back/points rearward when tightened. Usually axel systems allow you to tuck the handle in along the stays.

    I'll give a Scott dealer a call....sure looks like it could be done. I'm in no major hurry; thought it would be a good option if I ever get a new set of wheels.

    I found the IDS drops out on this page
    Scott Genius LT Dropout Set IDS 2 142/RWS 12 - Scott from Westbrook Cycles UK

    but its almost $90 (dropout set + shipping to florida) i think its the same ids set that you need for the scale....Im going to wait on the 142x12 swap for now.
