If you're seat clamp is facing the front...try turning it around so that the bolt is pointing towards the front of the bike. It worked for me.

Hmmmm, interesting idea. My clamp has an arrow on it and you're supposed to align it with one of the slots in the frame but it might be an idea to try different positions. I'll give it a go!

Hello
It's the second time that I have problems with the rear 12mm axle ..
The original Nuts don't "Works well"  :P

The original axle are dead (I broken a litle piece inside), and now I buy this one, but the Nuts is not compatible with the original dropout





Somebody have any idea to fix it or know other Nuts possible to use?

Regards

I used this one on all my bikes: https://www.bike-discount.de/en/buy/dt-swiss-rws-e-thru-12x142mm-aluminium-thru-axle-454335

But tried this one recently, it hasn't a lot of km, but it looks to work very well too, and a bit cheaper.
It is only alloy, no plastic parts like the DT Swiss.
The action is a little smoother on the DT Swiss, not to tighten but just to place the handle in position after tightening.

carbonazza, I try to use the nut has provide by the Axle (Coluer Bikes) and It's fit's good!!
 The Wheel don't have clearance and I use the hand to hold the nut and screw the axle, the clip do pressur on the nut and fix in the right position
When I used the original axle, I did the same, hand to hold, etc ... and I didn't have problems ...
Now i'm going to mount the rear derailleur and check if is gonna "Works well"  8)
I'm gonna pray  ;D

As long as there is enough thread in the nut you'll be fine.
Not seing it well on the picture #2.

Do not forget to add an M3 ( or M4 ) screw to lock the nut in place.

At this moment I have the nut of the pics to put the new transmission on the bike  8)
But I'm waiting for the original nut from the workswell seller, I prefer to use the original for my clear conscience (Home made system it's a risk)
The bolt, is not necessary to use, because it's impossible to fit correctly  :-X

I am wondering if ican fit 27,5 wheels on the frame. Well the issues is the rear tire. I am gonna run with some rocket rons 2,6". Rons should be 65mm wide. Has anyone done this before?

`Cos 2,25 29" is not wide enough.

I ran some WTB Trailblazer 2.8's on mine for a bit. They measured 2.5 though and they fit okay.

Nice ride! Is there still space for larger tire? How wide rims you have?  Have the 27.5+ effect to geo or did the bb drop much?

Thanks. I wouldn't go much wider than that or it might become an issue. They were mounted on 29mm inner rims.

I didn't notice any issues with the handling or the BB height. But to be honest, I rode it that way for maybe 100 miles. The wheels were off my trail bike so I just bought the tires as an experiment. After riding it, I decided to go with a dedicated plus bike and got a 29+. The 062 is now a single speed with a RS Sid and 29" wheels.

If you plan on running a plus or semi-plus 27.5 tire, you may want to consider a frame made for it. The CS will be shorter and the HA will be slacker.

I dont know if i really need wider tires, but I have used to run 2,35" at back. I am just thinking "all the time" how much better the bike would be with wider tires. Probably 29" and 2,4" at back would do fine.. Its hard to find frame that can handle 2,4" wide tires.  Any chinese options? Bike-discount has resonable priced sale carbon frames...

If you are not against the CUBE written on it  ;) you're right, the prices are very similar to what we can get direct from China.
When accounting for shipping/customs & other costs.

Hey Guys,

I'm really close to ordering one of these frames. Can someone please tell me the most reputable seller to buy through?
Also, any comments on this frame VS the Tideace FM-M009?

My main aim for this bike is to mainly use it for commuting, but also to give me the option of riding a HT (currently ride a 2014 Trance X29er).

I've just built a FM-M009 for a friend who fell in love with that frame.

At first I was reluctant to try Tideace - Haideli, that are relatively unknown here.
But to my surprise I was pleased from start to finish.
Joy was my contact with perfect communication.
Much better than Workswell wich is more OFF than ON.

I find the design of the frame prettier than my 062( very personal obviously ).
The top tube is flat and large, and separates nicely in the two seatstays at the seat tube.
I was impressed by the paint job too, it was flawless.

Here is the finished and already tried bike with the GX Eagle( nice groupset by the way ):






The only drawback I found with this frame is that it looks a 34T single chainring is probably the maximum that can fit.
