    Shimano Saint rear hub axle question

    Gathering parts to build up my NS Surge Evo frame. Going with Saint crank/brakes/shifter/derailleur and thought I'd just go full saint and get saint hubs. My question is the NS frame is spec'd for 135x10 and doesn't have through axle. So what will I need to attach this hub to the dropouts?

    You should just need a standard 135 QR rear axle. The hub your using should have flanges that sits inside the drop out, the QR just secures it. I believe they also made some 135x10 thru bolt kits that would work with certain hubs. Those might be getting harder to come by though!

    Like Magsrod said, The nubs that stick out of the end of a quick release rear hub are 10mm so the fit in the 10mm drop out of your frame.

    Also, for reference the nubs that stick out of the end caps on quick release front hubs are 9mm.

    Here's where there can be confusion. Some hubs have end caps with a 9mm hole front/ 10mm hole rear designed for a full size quick release DT Swiss makes 9/10 thru axles for these hubs.

    Both of these systems work a frame with 10mm rear drop outs and forks with 9mm drop outs.
