    will my qr rear drop out fit a 15mm thru axle?

    I want to build a SS wheel with the White Industries eric eccentric SS hub. I was going to lance it onto a notubes alpine rim. I was wondering if their was a compatibility problem with the QR drop out that on my C'dale F4 and the 15mm through axle it needs. Is their any adapter kit or anything to get around this?

    The Axle bolts are 10mm, they will fit your F4 dropouts fine

    The White Industries ENO hub does not use a 15mm through axle. It is a bolt-on axle for use in standard rear 10mm open dropouts.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Using the dt swiss spoke calculator, and assuming that you're using the ENO for discs, I came up with 244 mm (32 spokes, 3 cross). Same on both sides.
