Put some Hadley/819 w/a 10mm TA on my XL 5 spot and am diggin the the way it rides so much I had to share. Had the opportunity to ride AZ for 6 days and I must say the back of the bike feels WAY stiffer and TRACKS so much better. Any Turner riders rollin a 10mm TA? I hope someday soon I can do a 15mm in the front. ( that seems like it would be a huge upgrade ) or not ....never tried one.

Been rocking the Hadley 10mm TA for years now...albeit on I9 hubs the last several. I agree with you, I wouldn't go back!!!

DT Swiss TA on my Sultan, I just like the beefier interface, not sure whether I notice any additional ride characteristics.

It was on 5spot before but has been on my Sultan for a year now. Love that hub.

sounds like something I need to look into. As to your question about the 15mm t/a up front, I had the new RLC Fit 32 Talas w/15mm on my DW Spot... after six months I've tossed a 20mm fork (RS Lyrik)... my advice, just go straight to 20mm if the standard qr does not feel stiff. You may add a little weight, but the 20mm is the way to go, IMHO

How do you like the Lyrik? I am thinking of either the Lyrik or Fox TALAS 36.

Ditto...
I big guy like you will really notice a 20 mm front axle. I would do it ASAP. I actually can't believe anyone is using 9 mm front axles anymore. I have been on a 20 mm front axle since my '02 Marz. Z1. I will never switch back.

Throw a 20 mm revelation on there. I think you will really dig it, especially if you noticed the rear T/A.

+1 on 10 mm Hadley.

Not on Turner frames, but on other bikes for a few years. It can be a big difference.

Added bonus: just swapped to a bike with a Maxle 12x135 rear - swapped the Hadley hub over with about $35 worth of parts. Nice.

The DT RWS 10mm throughaxle is my ticket. No tools required trail side and just as stiff.

Fun Bolts are a better design, in my mind, as the bolts pinch the drop out between the axle and the bolt itself causing zero compression of the axle and no additional pre-load on the bearings; but, they require you have have a 8mm on hand.

I love the Lyrik. Not as many bells and wistles as the 32 Talas, but I really did not need them anyway, and the coil is much better for the type of riding I do most often. I have not ridden a Fox 36, but as the Talas is air, so I'm thinking I would just as well have the coil Lyrik.
