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!
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...
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 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.
