I've got mavic crossmax enduro so i can run 135x12 (which won't work on the heckler) or 135x9 no option for a 10mm axle that i can find

You're pretty screwed then, you can buy a skewer wth nuts on the end but it's not really going to do squat

what year is the heckler? You sure you cant fit a 10 mm axle though there? if so then the 12-10mm step down axle wins again.

Beat me to it. Sounds like a winner.

It's a 2012 without tapered head tube. Never heard of these sounds like it could be the solution. What company makes them? Thanks for the help

sun ringle, Azonic, Loaded. there are quite a few out there now. Mavic makes one as well if you wanted to keep the brand love going. (but I think it is 50$ and the rest are in the 12-20$ range...

So long story short, the axle nut on my fav 36 (20mm thru axle ) is stripped pretty badly, first of all. How do I remove it without damaging the axle? Does the end nut come as it's own piece or is the whole axle one piece? Secondly where can I purchase a new one if needed? Thanks

Looking to get a new set of DU bushings for my 2012 Kona Operator. Where would I get these? Also need a lighter spring. I weigh about 135lbs. What spring should I run? (not sure on shock stroke and eye to eye, still need to measure that but just want a general weight to look out for).

Yeah. I can't find em online anywhere. Do I need to get someone to fabricate them for me? Or is this what I need? http://www.pricepoint.com/Brand/Fox-Racing-Shox/Fox-Shocks-DU-Bearing-Bushing.axd?gclid=Cj0KEQiA3bymBRC19IrD7O_NrYsBEiQAb2dpA_bNEAjCQxs9kw7g7xwxqmJTQ6jj0kZbn4aMVhIgh8QaAh_o8P8HAQ
