Are there any DH frames out there that do not require a thu-axle in the rear?

Transition Dirtbag, not exactly a DH rig, but I use mine for all around DH and FR
Specialized Demo8, Intense M3, I'm sure there are still a couple others floating around.
venerable Bullit and the '02 DHR are good ones
why wouldnt you want a thru axle? they are sweet, i dont think id ride one after i saw my friends qr come undone and the wheel fall off whilst racing the NCS snowshoe.
The reason that i don't want a thu-axle is because i just got a ck for my 01 kona stab, and im thinking of getting a better dh frame. So i was wondering if there is any frames that i would not have to buy/build a new wheel!
just get a new hub. its worth the money for a stiffer frame.
Actually the M3 uses a 12mm thru axle ! .... but the Demo 8 does not.
Mountain Cycle ShockWave 9point5.
It has replaceable drop-outs, QR, 12mm, or 12mm floater.
That's your best deal.
your ck probably doesn't even have the right width to fit a new frame
This is like saying, "I bought a box of 9mm rounds, and now I want to buy a 9mm handgun to fit my bullets".
Ya i no what ur saying....if im willing to put down 2600 on a frame...then i should just get a 200$ hub with it, DONT BE CHEAP lol.
sell the chris king, get a hadley and all of your problems will be solved...
you can run a QR on the 135mm intense rear end
karps are qr
pdc fr is also avail in qr
old v10 has a qr option
Yea im thinking about the m3 but it might be too much of a bike for me.
no its not it will make you 10 times faster lol jkjk, hey don't sell the criss king hub unless you are going to get the same or more $....have you talked to john what is the price on the m3
punctuation and good spelling are your friend.
Yes, seriously Zack learn how to punctuate! Dude i don't think that we should have the whole teownam go up on friday because we don't want to be held up, and we want to get down the damn trail by the time it gets dark. Unlike last time...
Scott High Octane (as far as i know)
My friend has a scott high octane 2. When he test rode at Arts Cyclery in SLO, CA he blew out the manipoo kingpin in the parking lot. They took the same fork off the other octane 2 and it lasted a few days only. Then he got a shiver. And then a dhx5.
It is on the heavy side, but its burly. Is it a race bike or a huck bike? His fork is really slack and its the the headtube sleeve iis in the steepest position.
My V10 has a standard rear axle. I dont mind it at all. Could always go bolt on if i had any problems.
or just get azonic outlaws
There you go. If the CK hub is in good condition you can probably sell it for a good price.
My M1 has QR or 12mm TA options, just change the spacers.
But seriously, if it's a king you should be able to get enough money out of it to get a Hadley/DT Swiss FR/Hope Bulb for another spacing if needed. I've had no issues running 12mm or QR except for time to change the tire AND stiffness. The 12mm is pretty stiff.
I'd wait until you got the frame. I already had a new QR wheel built up (hope bulb QR) and got my M1. I wanted a stiffer rear, so I got the 12mm option for the hub. I say the above options as they can all be converted from 12mm to QR or the Hadley can go larger if needed.
good luck with that. 99% of the time you are going to lose money. Just suck it up. Hadley is just as good as King.
