one of my friends ( were friends... right?) said that there was a step up/ step down axle, for a 10mm axle to a 12, or to a 12 mm, with 10mm slots?

am i just talking techno babble or is there really something out there

to make it easier for some

i have a 150 by 10 mm axle that goes through sealed cartridge bearings
the frame im getting accepts 12mm by 150mm ( which is normal)

i am planning on making 2mm shims for the 10mm axle where it slides into the frame

the one i saw was on the azonic site. it was a step down from 12 to 10mm. i dont think they could make a step up one could it wouldnt be able to be inserted into the hub so i dont know what i was thinking. just make spacers nate itd be easy

you'd have problems with that axle going into the hub if they did make a 10mm->12mm. You're best best is probably to get the shims or buy a new rear hub/wheel.
