I'm trying to get all my parts here when I get my frame. It sucks that Intenses website does not tell you very much on true specs, little lacking on info. I've looked all over got two answers to my question...kinda need a concrete solution.
What is the true rear dropout size 10mm or 12mm, whats the better choice for this bike thru or bolt?
Got some Hope pro 2 need to settle on what size conversion kit.
Got some Deemax that has 12 thru, but not wanting to push those around the mountain all day long.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

The dropouts are set up for a 12mm axle, but it comes with shims that you pop in if you want to run a 10mm or quick release.

On my Uzzi I'm running Hope Pro II's (which are light for a rear hub), with the 135x12mm conversion, if you're going to freeride this is a great setup. I recommend a Hadley 12x135 rear axle, it's really light compared to some of the other offerings I came across.

Thanks for the info. Yeah I want a 12mm for the stiffness sense its not a thu axle. Kinda put off by the dropouts, worrying slightly about how stiff it will be.

The whole flex thing is way overblown if you ask me, these forums have some good information on them but are also full of dudes who spend more time analyzing other forums, counting grams and cyber-whining about tiny details than actually riding their bike. They are the ones who blew up this flex issue.

I'm over 200 lbs with gear and don't have any problems with flex. Enjoy your new ride bro.
