    Old Ringle Rear Abbah.

    Hey guy's,I sent a email off to Ringle about this and had no luck due the "age"
    of the Hub.

    :Qustion to Ringle was,do you have a conversion kit for bringing a 12/135
    down to a 10/135?

    Answer: No,we no longer make that hub in a 10/135. 10 years ago you could
    get a 10 or 12mm when ordering it.

    I have a full rebuild kit here with me,freehub and all. I want to put this set on my
    son's Arrow Hardtail bike. Without that 10mm, I'm ass out.

    I thought someone might have a old Ringle Hub in a 10/135mm Spacing?
    Peace.

    You might be able to get a machinist to turn down the ends of your 12mm axle to 10mm and rethread.

    I think It might?

    My only concern is if there will be any play in the center of the Hub,as I will
    have to take the internal sleeve out to run that Axel. What's really cool is
    that I have a couple brand new Saint Rear Der.'s.

    Ringle just gave me a call. He said that the 10mm option that they had back
    then was a QR. Also he had no parts as to the age of it. He did say he had
    a guy grind the Axel and had no problems. Dont know how I would go about
    that? Anyone?

    I'll order up this Axel for now and see what happens. Peace.

    These will only work if the hub is a through axle type design. In other words the axle doesn't attach to the hub, it just slides through and is fastened by nuts on either end. If your hub has a threaded axle that stays attached when you remove the wheel then this won't work for you.

    Here is a shot for you. My son is buying the Axel and has yet to do so yet. I think
    I think I like the first Axel better? Hope these shot's come out. Peace.
