Anyone running a 9mm thruaxle front and/or a 10mm thruaxle rear on their Spesh bikes? Possibly on a Stumpy FSR or a Camber.

I know the front wheels already come with the DT RWS thru skewer but is it compatible with other brands of wheels or will other 9mm thru systems work?

As far as the 10mm bolt-on thruaxle will it fit in the dropouts on their bikes?
Thanks,

Yes they will fit. Why would you want to do that though?
The new Stumpys only come with a standard QR fork. So if you want the added stiffness you've got to run thru axles. The rear is still a standard qr size but the axle will bolt in as opposed to having a cam-operate qr. This will increase stiffness. I asked mainly because I plan to run different wheels as the stock Spesh wheels in garbage imho. The last set I had was so flexy and had to be trued every 3 rides or so.

Look into bolt through as well, I've converted my rear Pro 2 to 10mm bolt through (using a DT Swiss RWS axle) and it's a very nice setup.

Running a Spesh Enduro SL.

Specialized uses oversized endcaps on any bike that doesn't have a thru axle.

Oversized endcaps are supposedly just as stiff as a 15mm TA while being lighter.
