thank you. i've never had a wheel fall off, nor have i heard of that happening due to the quick release
Haha I was mountain biking with a friend and his quick release was loose, so when he took one of the drops his front wheel fell off. LOL
Yeah, but that was his fault for not tightening it, not the quick release's
Ya true

Thats the worst mistake to make not tightening the axle enough, especially with 203mm discs lol. Otherwise theyre brilliant axles.

i dont think the wheelset is good enough becuase they are qr not through axles i think you should buy a wheelset like the azonic outlaws instead im pretty sure they are through axle, people please correct me if im wrong

go custom Smile so much more rewarding than a stock wheelset. but a 20mm axle is so much stiffer and less parts means less things so snap. now with a qr you have so many small peices that can break

yeah id be super bummed if thru axels didnt work on my frame

well u know the through axle is only on the front its like a 10mm or something on back still

Lets clarify someting Azonic Outlaws have a 20mm front hub that can be converted to qr. The rear wheel is qr but comes with a 12mmx135 bolt on conversion. For about $15 you can get a 10mm bolt on axle from Azonic or Price Point. I know because I have 2 sets of them and I have the rear wheel converted to a 10mm bolt on which fits a regular QR dropout horizontal or verticle.

thanks for helping me with that because i dont actually have one of those wheelsets, ive just looked at them becuase i was going to build a new bike, and ive heard they are like bulletproof

No problem they are good wheels for the money

Posted: Sep 7, 2009 at 16:03 Quote
So if i buy the Azonic Outlaws, will i have to buy the separate axels? or does it come with QR and thru?
