    10x135 hubs ?

    Planning to build a new rear wheel, have 135mm drop outs in a frame.

    Thinking about 10x135 mm thru bolt hub + DT RWS skewer.

    - Is it worth it ? Is the additional stiffness noticeable ?
    - What are 10x135 thru bolt hubs available ? I know you convert Chris King's ISO and Hope Pro Evo 2 - is there anything else ? Does any of them come as 10x135 thru bolt (so I don't have to convert it) ?

    I ran a Shimano Saint rear hub with a DT RWS skewer for a couple of years, and it was awesome. Definitely stiffer than a regular quick-release, but still easy to remove the wheel. King uses Funbolts to replace the quick-release in their rear ISO hubs. I'm thinking about doing that with mine.

    I'm a clyde running a Shimano Zee rear, mavic 521, with the DT RWS. It has eliminated all brake and flex issues I was having. It's rock solid.

    Thanks - I actually may go ahead and purchase Zee hub, have trouble finding dimensions to size up the spokes though...
    Anybody knows where to find them ?

    Another option is to buy a 12mmX135mm Thru axel hub and use an Azonic Momentum axel. The axel steps down from 12mm to 10mm. I have been using one for 2 years on my Divinci Ollie. Here is a link:
