3/8 Axle for the Ratchet Hub

Ratchet Hub

You may have noticed on Adam Banton’s last bike check that he has a 3/8″ axle listed for his Ratchet hub and JC has one on his bike too. These aluminum axle kits are available now and come with spacers which helps fit the hub to most 14mm dropouts. If you’re looking to shave some weight or maybe even just clean up the look of your bike with ourĀ Volcano Bolts, this kit would be a great upgrade for your Ratchet. Hit up the mail-orders or your local bike shop to get your bike on one.

Volcano Bolts!!

Another three post frenzy… you lucky lucky people…
Don’t worry these bolts aren’t really volcanos… or are they?!?!?

No. they arent…

What they are are smooth low profile bolts for the Marmoset and Monkey hubs if you aren’t planning on using pegs.
6mm allen key sockets, slightly shorter than regular bolts to save that all important weight (about half an ounce per bolt) and with a big head to allow use in 14mm dropouts (with a suitable converter).

Sold as singles.

Should be available early in 2007.
