    Rear Axle Options on FR

    Guys, I have decided to purchase a new set of hoops for my impending FR. I am going the Chris King option but unsure of the rear axle options on the frame. Is there a 150mm rear axle option on the FR? I really want the rear end as stiff as possible for my body weight.

    Hi lornibear,

    as far as I know there is no 150mm rear Axle-Option for the FR and ST Models. If yes, donīt forget to order a wider Bottombracket because of chainline.
    Go with the TRUAX-Option - that should be stiff enough (Chainstays of the FR and ST are the same, I think)

    Yeah, skip Chris King so that you can run a 12mm thru-axle.

    The 12mm Maxle option is without a doubt the best way to go.

    Your best hub options are Hadley or I9. Hope, DT Swiss, and a few others are also available.

    I have a hadley on the rear of my ufo st (135 X12)
    Sweet hubs and switch to 10mm very easily!

    I hear I9s are bling though too

    Just looking at universal cycles website at the hadley hubs. Very nice and supposed to be better than Mr king. Does anybody have any experiences with these hubs. Also, on that page, what rear hub do I need in order to run the 12mm thru axle.

    Lorni,
    You want the one with the ti 10mm or 12mm axle BOLT-ON, not the QR.
    I have had my hubs from hadley for 2 years now. I got the ones with
    very high engagement points. After about 1 year the hub exploded
    I called hadley and they told me they had a bad set of bearings from their supplier.
    They took my hub back and totally rebuilt it for me. No problems since.

    I called them about 2 months later for another part and the reception person
    said "oh Mr Boone, I remember you. You had such and such done a couple months
    ago. Sorry about all the trouble is everything ok?" Amazing! Am sure she prolly could pull it up on her computer screen but still

    Nice folks!! Tough hubs. Don't forget, you can get any color you want!

    Been beating the piss out of my Hadleys for two seasons. The bearings are starting to get tired but they have seen some very extreme conditions.

    been beating on hadley hubs for 5-6 years, very solid hubs. you want the 135mmX12mm and 72point engagement. it was only a few of the 104pts that had an issue and hadley took care of it very quickly and professionally. they are a small shop and treat their customers great. no need for this kid to look any further.
