theoretically would 3/8 w/ adaptors be about the same strength as 14mm once its all tightened?

any street riders have 3/8 female rears on here???

pros/cons of the setup?

help please... smile

I highly doubt that.
I don't see any pros in riding 3/8" rear unless you're a pegless rider.

Well I think pretty much everyone runs 3/8ths Females in the front. Depends on what hub you have really. I know of plenty of people that run the 3/8ths Ratchet conversion & they hold up to SAVAGE peg abuse. But if you're running a hub with a 15mm Alloy Axle threaded for 3/8ths Bolts it would definitely be questionable strength wise! Make sure it has at least a 17mm inner axle & if you can get Heat Treated CRMO bolts (G-Sport for example) You'll be set!

Edit: Basically if you get a G-Sport Ratchet with a 3/8ths Conversion or an Odyssey Antigram with the 3/8ths Kit you should be good, i cant really comment on other hubs tbh.

why does everyone act like 3/8 is weak for the rear wheel? it's fucking not. it works for the front. i rode a 3/8 raptor, not the btr, the actual raptor just fine. yes the adapters make the strength equal out. 95% of my riding involves pegs and never a problem. i ran a primo dsg with it too. so my bolts had to hold on the wheel, the pegs, take all the peg abuse, and abuse from the dsg. it was fine. 3/8 female in the rear wouldnt have lasted this long if it wasnt a good idea or wasnt safe.

Btw adapters aren't going to do shit unless you have steel ones and run them on the inside of the dropouts and use 3/8 pegs

If you are talking about female hubs I would say what matters most is the material and diameter of the inner axle.
Sure 3/8" bolts will be more prone to breaking than 14mm bolts, but it's the inner axle strength that really counts.

As for male hubs, I wouldn't run a 3/8" hub in the rear with pegs but that's just me.
