    10mm axles?

    Im running a shimano xt quick release hub on the rear an I just bought a wheelset with a 10 mm bolt on hub an i was wondering if the 10 mm will fit on my bike?

    If you bought it...why not just try to put it on. You'll have a definite answer.

    The dropouts in your frame are designed for a 10mm axle, on a quick release hubs it's only the small part which rests in the dropout which is 10mm, with a QR skewer then pulling it all into place. 10mm hub means you'll need an axle which goes through the dropouts and through the hub.

    I did this to my bike. I used a DT Swiss thru bolt and swapped out the axle on the hubs. It's alot beefier.

    As others have said: it'll fit.

    Shouldn't you have checked on that before ordering?
