    highline rear thru bolt issue ..need help

    I just bought a set of azonic outlaws for my highline (2006) and the thru bolt that came with the outlaws will not thread thru my derailler hanger.. i cant seem to find the old thru bolt i think i might have packed it up with the wheels i just sold not knowing that it was part of the frame and not the wheelset!! i guess my question is... where do i get another one.?? its 12 x 150(or more) with a course threaded end that bolts thru the rear deraileur...

    highline guys know what im talking about!!! please help!!

    thanks

    Big props to you for admitting that you were stupid enough for selling your thru axle. Now, just call Turner and order another one.

    When you get everything up and running report back. I'd like to know if the wheels are any good. They seem like too good of a deal!

    I've been running Outlaws all season at Diablo, with a trip to Whistler and the North Shore, no problem. Haven't had to true them once.

    As stated you need to call for a new axel or try to track down your old one.

    In addition to what 6th E stated I think you can also get a maxle too.

    I'm running a Maxle on my Highline. Works fine. Can't say it's any faster than a thru-axle other than the time it would take to get the wrench out of my pack. But still cool. I think it runs around $35 bucks...so depending on what a replacement TA will cost, it might be worth considering.
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    I have built a couple of highlines and installed a rear maxle on each of them before they left the shop. I have a couple of thru bolts around if you need one. PM me

    I've had the Maxle on my watch list at Universal for about 3 months now...

    EC, I got my Maxle from Larry.
    I wouldn't go beating any doors down for one. It's nice but NBD IMO.
    OTOH a Maxle fork is kickarse.

    6E... I need some traveling tips. PM sent.
