Thru axle


Recommended Posts

The bike shop was building my MTB yesterday and when i went to fetch it, they put a normal skewer on my thru axle back wheel. Is it safe to ride like this? or should i get a thru axle skewer?

Yes I have a Swift carbon d-vore, and it is a thru axle frame.


Then they/you must use a thru-axle. Not on for them to use normal QR

I wouldn't return my bike to a shop that would put a skewer on, instead of a TA and think it's ok.

The Hub speaks with one voice. This is weird. It speaks the truth though.


Also, I'd suggest having a word with the owner of the LBS. He may need to tar and feather one of his mechanics.
