Trek Scratch Air 8 2010 rear axel

Postby JonnyN » Fri Nov 23, 2012 17:09 pm

Hello all...hoping someone can help.

I am looking for a 12mm diameter rear axle for a Trek Scratch Air 8 frame. I have trawled the internet for hours but I am having no luck. I bought a 142x12mm axle by DT Swiss (the screw in type which the ratchet system) but this was not long enough. I am having real trouble finding one of these things so any help would be greatly appreciated.

For info: The year of the frame is 2010 and the drive-side drop out has a screw thread.

Cheers! :mrgreen:

Not 100% sure but I think Trek use an odd size axle which you will have to buy from a Trek dealer.

£50 for an axle? Bloody hell.
I can think of four bikes I have lying around, all usable, that combined didn't cost that much.
