@HOG2001: would you be able to give the shaft length of the rear axle? I am thinking of ordering a hard lite and don't know exactly which model would fit.

Thanks

The shaft length of my Shift Up rear axle is 176,5mm. With this length i'm getting a overhang of about 2,5mm....with the original locknut from Crabonda (see the picture in Post #950).

Is the locknut provided by Carbonda if you did _not_ order axles from them?

I ordered some Hardlites and am wondering/concerned that I also need to find a compatible locknut.

No, the locknut is only provided when you order the axles. Alternative you can use this locknut...or a similar locknut

Hmm. Curious if my new frame will have one...

WOW WOW WOW!!!  New frame arrived today (actually yesterday but I wasn't home).  5 business days from ordering from Adam to ship and arrive in Canada.  That's impressive.  Have not had the chance to unbox it yet.

Per my note above, I was going to kit it out with 105-R7000 (the new stuff), however, it looks like the new gear won't be available until mid to late August so I'm going to stick with the 105-5800 hydraulic groupset as I'd like to be able to ride the bike this summer.

Here is potentially a dumb question.  I've never owned a frame with internally routed cabling before. The frame came with orange plastic tubing for the front and rear shifter cable that is already routed through the frame.  I noticed that the shifter cable will slide right through this tubing.  Do you leave this orange tubing in place after running your cables or remove it?

No you take it out. Tape or tie one side of the shift cable to it and pull it through. If you somehow lose the tube, thou can always use strong and a vacuum cleaner to route it through.

Thanks.  Here's a trick that worked for me.  Fish the cable all the way through the orange tubing supplied.  You can then simply slide the orange tubing off through the frame.  Easy as that.

Well, I was excited to receive my frame yesterday. I immediately started building it up.

However, I quickly ran into a road block. The rear axle and derailleur is made from a solid piece that directly bolts up to the frame. I can bolt the axle/derailleur hanger up to the bike with no problem. However, the thru axle does not line up when trying to bolt it on. If I were to apply any significant torque, the bolts would surely cross thread. Loosening the axle/derailleur hanger mounting bolt to the frame allows the thru axle the angle to tread appropriately. However, if the thru axle is threaded, the mounting screw can not be tightened into the predrilled hole in the frame.

Has anyone ran into this? I’ve tried both axles/derailleur hangers supplied. They both produce the same result. I’ve also emailed Adam with no response.

If you're using the axles from Carbonda then I would recommend trying a different axle.  The rear axle had issues aligning even without the wheel in place and had to be hammered through with the wheel.  I swapped them for the DT Swiss RWS axle and had zero issue inserting the axle or threading it.

That doesn’t seem right at all. Not saying the dot Swiss axles don’t work. I mean, the provided axles should work. And hammering just sounds crazy...

I’m sure I could go back and search, but do you have the link or sizes of the dt Swiss axles? Thanks

I agree it is odd.  This happened day one after receiving my frame and I had the issue with two wheelsets.  The axle even rolls smooth so I don't know what the issue is, but it is night and day between the rear axle stock and the dt swiss one.  Rear is 142mm x 12mm E-Thru road, front is 100mm x 12mm (I had no issues with the front but swapped both for consistency).

142mm x 12mm E-Thru road is a standard size and had no issue threading in to the original nut on the deraileur side.

The 142x12 comes in various lengths: 163mm, 168mm, and 171mm

Google search says 171mm but "e-thru road" is a set standard and should not have different sizes.  Searching 142x12 will give a lot of options.

Thanks for your help. Lastly, did you still use the provided axle/derailleur hanger?

I used the stock derailleur hanger and stock axle nut, discarded the stock axle for the dt swiss axle.

The setup I received is one unit. The axle and derailleur hanger are one piece that bolts to the frame...

Can you post a picture?  The axle should insert from the non-drive side...

You can see with the thru axle in place, the axle/derailleur hanger mounting bolt does not line up. Thus not allowing it to be tightened.
