    Thru-axle conversion possible on my Toughroad?

    I have a Giant Toughroad that I plan on using as my rigid 29er for single track use. The bike has been thoroughly upgraded with XT 1x11, Stans Arch EX, with a pair of Shwalbe Nobby Nic Addix 2.35 tires on the way. So now I would like to convert the wheels which are currently quick release, to thru-axle. Is it possible? If yes, what do I need? Thanks!

    yes you can do that (just the sake of having thru axles right?)

    you just need new frame and a new fork that support thru axles (probably new wheels too but since you conveniently didn't mention which Toughroad model you got I can only speculate on this)

    According to Giant, thru-axle isn't compatible with the Toughroad frameset. Oh well.

    A garage full of steel frames means happiness.
