    dumb question of the day

    ok heres my dumb question. i bought an intense m3 with 150mm hub spacing, but the frame didnt come with a 12mm thru axle. i was looking around today at work and found no 12 thru axles in QBP or BTI. where the hell can i get this axle. the hadley hub im buying doesnt come with it, the frame didnt come with it! am i missing something here?

    has anyone made their own thru axle?????
    I'm thinking of buying some grade 5 titanium bar stock sticking it on the lathe, reducing the diameter to 12mm leaving a head on one end, and threading the other end. I think that could be pretty sweet.

    is the hadley hub new? my friends hadley came with a 12mm thru axle, and most of my hubs have. the grade 5 titanium stock sounds sick though.

    Here may be an even dumber question. Do you already have a 150mm wheel or hub? Every 150 hub I've seen comes with an axle, and BTI has several hubs and wheelsets with the axle included. QBP also has a Problem Solvers 150 axle only that is threaded for a Saint derailleur, sold separately to fit most hubs.
