Direto Xr with Shimano SLX 12 Speed and Trek Procaliber Thru Axle Issue

Postby romfevola@gmail.com » Fri Oct 16, 2020 10:18 am

Hello,

Just received the Direto Xr...

To fit my old six 7100 cassette I've bought as well the Shimano Micro Spline Free Hub and the 148 Boost adapter as my frame need that (2020 Trek Procaliber 9.6)

The cassette goes with no problem and the bike fits perfectly. The issue is that with my own Thru Axle when I tighten to the recommended Nm (10) the frame squeeze to both side and so slightly touch the cassette.

I noticed that if I unscrew a little bit the thru axle it goes fine.

Do I need another or a different thru axle or the trainer isn't compatible with my mtb?

Thanks a lot for your time!

I'd 3d print a spacer for the left side, or just use regular metal spacers on top of the 12x148 adaptor.
Do you have any issues with 12s derailleur cage ? Mine XT does not fit and I had to take the side panel off the direto.

Hi!

I finally managed after 4 days of trying.

I’ve had just to add the little adapter on top of the one that locks the cassette but it’s not written or illustrated anywhere...

So all good with my 12speed derailleur. The xr is fully compatible maybe you have another model??
