im in the middle of a niner wfo 9 build and would like to know if through bolt, or through axle would be possible on a regular qr 135mm rear spacing? i know niner has maxle kit for 80.00 but im not sure if i wanna spend that kind of money if i can get something cheaper simpler and better. i would like my rear to be as stiff as the front which will be using 15mm marzoochi front end. thanks

I know you can order the Hope Pro II with the 10mm thru axle caps installed (vs buying after the fact)...not sure if that includes the thru axle or not.

how does that bolt get tightened? is it an allen bolt? i cannot tell by the pic..
Yes. The nut pictured on the left is captured and held in the dropout and tightened with a hex wrench in the other nut on the other axle end. Very sano but I wish Hadley offered the end pieces anodized in the colors of their hubs. That would be sweet IMO.
