    10mm x 150mm rear axle?

    Hey all,

    Looking for a 10mm x 150mm rear axle for my Blindside(dropouts are standard 10mm dropouts). Anyone know of anyone that makes one? The lighter the better, but I'm not too picky.

    Any help?

    I saw your post on the other thread about this. I was going to say Hadley but all the 150mm axels I've heard of are 12mm. I'm sure there's one out there though.

    I just talked to my boss about this because a lot of the frames I've been looking at lately have 135 X 12 rear ends and I have the 10mm Hadley. It is really easy to get the parts from Hadley to go 12mm according to my boss if you can't find the axel...

    Edit: One thing I was thinking about in your situation is the braking forces on the thinner axel. The Blindsides floater runs on the outside of the bike and having the thinner axel plus the abuse from crashes and mishaps; it may be better to do the 12mm axel anyway...

    Yeah i can get the conversion kit no problem, but for me, it would be easier to just get a new bearing and axle.

    If push comes to shove, I'll just get the conversion kit.

    Yeah, that's very true. Would probably be better to run it how they designed it to be.
