Title: 135 QR Rear wheel to 142 12mm frame??
Post by: tomc on September 17, 2017, 05:41:37 PM
Help me out please as I'm a little confused what I can do here.


 I broke the rear triangle of a  Salsa Spearfish frame. The rear end is spaced 135 and is quick release. I have someone who is selling another Spearfish frame that I'm considering but it's a newer year with 142 12mm thru axle. Can I use some adapter with my current wheels to run them on the 142 12mm frame?? I have two rear wheels, one is a Sram x7 hub to stans arch and the other is a DT Dwiss 350 hub to Stans Arches.  I don't want to buy a different frame only to find out I need a new set of wheels as well.


I get a little lost in what I can convert.

You should be able to convert the dt hub with no issues with new end caps

Yeah, they make adapters for these sorts of things. It'll work.
