QR to 9MM Thru Axle

Postby xcMuttley » Mon Sep 16, 2013 21:22 pm

Hi, just bought my first proper mountain bike. http://www.genesisbikes.co.uk/bikes/mou ... /mantle-20
Just wondering if anyone can tell me if i can fit a 9mm thru axle on those forks and hubs? Tried emailing genesis and got no reply. So any help would be greatly appreciated.

Maybe you should have gone for the 30 and not the 20.

No, the colour of the 30 is horrible. And the price i got this for didnt really make it worth paying extra for the 30 :D Lets just say it was an amazing price for a new bike!
