    Mukluk thru-axle dropouts? anyone do it yet?

    I got the 12mm axle but i didn't change it out yet. Anyone swap theirs for the stiffer rear end and have any feedback?
    thanks

    Planning this conversion before the snow flies. I Just finished converting my front hub to 150mm and putting a Bluto on and love the Maxle up front. Been trail riding a lot and find I need to adjust my rear QR frequently.

    I plan to do the rear end thru axle and truncate the cassette. I'll be running a 2x8 drivetrain setup. I currently run Bud up front on a Clownshoe, Lou out back on a Holy Rolling Darryl. The chainline prevents me from running a 2x drivetrain but I find the 1x10 drivetrain doesn't provide enough low end in snow, even with a OneUp.

    Just made the conversion to TA dropouts on my ti Muk, initially because I wasn't happy with the creaking that came from the Salsa QR.

    The noise is gone and, even better, the conversion also seems to have stiffened up the rear triangle.

    I've got a thru-axle on my Mukluk Ti and I really like it, but I've had it on the bike from the start.

    Could you please post details on your conversion?

    Thanks in advance.

    QBP FS1332 is the part number for Alternator swing plates for a thru-axle with a 177mm thru-axle. QBP QR8281 is just the 177mm thru-axle. With most rear hubs you can change end caps and go from QR to thru-axle. I've got a Hope Fatsno rear hub which I bought with both QR and thru-axle end caps because I didn't know how long it would take to get the thru-axle alternator plates when I built up my bike.
