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.
