    New question here. 6.6 12mm axle?

    Can someone tell me if my 6.6 frame can take a 12mm rear axle. I searched and searched and couldn't find the info.

    Your best bet is the DT Swiss 10mm on that frame

    Or you could use one of these:

    Universal Cycles -- Delta Axle Rod Skewers

    It is significant stiffer than a quick release in my experience. And I think at least as stiff as the DT 10 mm axle.

    I have successfully been running Chris King Funbolts on mine for many years. Should be as stiff as any 12mm axle system.

    Thank you all for your replies!

    I bought a whole new rear wheel with the saint 12mm hub to stiffen it up and was suprised it didn't come with an axle. Then I found out that the 12mm axle won't fit the 6.6 anyway so it looks like I'll get one of these Sun Ringle Rear Conversion Axle 2012 | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com Sun Ringle conversion jobs when they come out in a month or so. No big deal, still got my old wheel on the bike,. But in hindsight I would've just bought one of the suggestions above and saved a ton of money. By the way the 6.6 is still going strong!

    You can get your local machine shop to make u an axel that goes from 12mm down to 10mm threaded ends. I did this for $20.
