can sumone explain thru axles for me. can any wheel be used with a thru axle fork?
Simply put there are QR axles and solid axles. Usually a 20mm front thru axle and a 10 / 12mm solid rear axle. To use a 20mm set-up you need a 20mm hub and fork. The rear can use a solid axle depending on the dropout size.thebikedoctor33 said:can sumone explain thru axles for me. can any wheel be used with a thru axle fork?
just to clarify, a solid axle and thru axle isnt the same thing. A thru axle is removable from the hub and slides through the fork dropouts. A solid axle simple has bolts at both ends instead of a qr.COmtbiker12 said:The front can use a solid axle as long as you get the right one for it. It's going to be a 9mm I believe. I think some have 10 but I'm not really sure..... If you do that it'll fit into any QR fork.
