    Thu Axles Carbon Dropouts

    So I picked up a disc thru axle frameset with Carbon Fiber dropouts (metal inserts for the threads. It didn't come with the axles, but stock uses some that thread in and clamp over like a QR skewer. So my question is, does any frame maker use carbon dropouts and traditional threaded axles? I'm a bit concerned about the abrasion on the head mating surface tightening a threaded axle.

    There are tons of frames/forks w/ carbon dropouts for q/r wheels. That's what you're asking, right? Your worry is not an issue.

    Quite a few carbon forked bikes have thru axles or thru quick releases (uses a quick release that threads into a fixed drop out). As CX said, no worries. Just make sure to get the correct axle and you'll be fine.

    Question was Thru axles without the QR lever with Carbon Fiber fork and rear triangle ends (can't call them dropouts I guess). So just screw in and tighten axles.
