Hi all,

I was just wondering if anyone has found a good alternative to the Rockshox Maxle Rear axle in 142 x 12?

Cheers

Dave

    Maxle Ultimate :) In all seriousness though Novatec do a passible version but hard to get hold of.

    I'll look into the Novatech for sure. Cheers :D

    The Maxle Ultimate is for a 15mm fitting though, I am after the rear 12mm version for a 142 hub.

    I used to have a DT Swiss 142x12 axle. It was as good as the maxle, no better or worse.
    The Maxle Ultimate was a big improvement over the old maxle but I have never seen a rear version.

    Thanks RockmonkeySC, isn't the thread of the DT and the Maxle a different pitch though? It's one thing that is not very clear at all with these rear axles.
