    Would it work? DT RWS thru bolt eccentric idea

    If you were to take a dt swiss 240 rear hub, convert it to the 10mm thru bolt with the proper end caps and remove some material on the axle where the drops would touch, could it be used to help set chain tension (with a half link if needed).

    The same idea has been shown with regular quick release hubs on Sheldon Brown's site as well as this forum.

    I'm under the impression that the RWS thru bolts are hollow, but my understanding is that as long as good clamping force is maintained, load is beared by the endcaps (and hub assembly) more so than the actual axle.

    What do you guys think?

    go for it. DT should sell a solid RWS ground for eccentric use.

    the fixmeup site shows very similar concept - his only proposes to work for a 2mm adjustment - should give you some combo that would work. keep us posted!
