No sorry, I meant the hub is a bolt on, and uses a bolt either side that sits in a recessed cap that tightens on the outside of the dropout, I only have one, and its a bit rough.


Pretty sure it is just an m5 standard bolt if it is the bolt I think it is... just don't use ally ones

you need a 9mm through axle for that - I use a specialized one but any fit.

You also need either the caliper mount or a spacer, I got a basic axle spacer and a couple of washers for free from my lbs for when I don't have the caliper mounted.

your 5mm drill will be wider than those "axels" eck - they are standard QR size - got a set for miniKen :)


Just realised what you mean :oops: - they might not even need drilled, if I was at home I'd try it out for you.
