    5 spot rear hub requirement?

    bluesky has 2013 frames on sale, and have some questions about 142x12.
    I can get the rear axle conversion for my Hope Pro 2, but does the frame come with the thru-axle?
    If I need to get one, will any non-threaded 142x12 thru axle work?
    BTW, 1599 is the sale price.

    Cool, I hope this is a legit deal. They show 2011 frame pic but called and they said it's 2013.

    Strafer.2,

    Let me know how this turns out. My LOB mechanic had been looking for a 5Spot, but he has limited funds...this is a hell of a deal if it turns out true.

    Then are the frames 2013's? If so, did they have any LGs? Guess I could call too.

    Cheers,
    As I stated, several of each size including large, and they are supposed to be 2013s.

    FedX just delivered, and it is 2013 frame and includes the rear thru axle.
    Had me worried for a minute since Bluesky shipped it in a Leader Bike box.
