    12mm thru axle needed

    I bought an sx trail III frame a few months ago. I've just bought a DT Swiss rear hub 440 with a 12mm thru axle (135mm spacing), but it hasn't come with the axle. Appartenly it should be supplied from the frame manufacturer.
    Any ideas where to get one from now other than waiting for specialized to send me one?

    i thought all the enduro/sx trails used a standard 10mm dropout.

    if you have the 440 with a 12mm thru axle i believe you will need a 12mm to 10mm step down axle to fit the frame.

    I see that you are in the UK. I bought mine from AW cycles but Rutlandcycling has got them too.

    The axle you'll need is the azonic momentum. I run one on my Demo 8 with a 12x135 hope bulb.
