So I bought a 2017 Trance 2 and am loving it but I noticed that the rear axle is not a maxle(???). I need an Allen key to remove it. It was a pain in the ass when I had to change a flat trail side and forgot my multitool at home.
Anyways, I’m looking around to get a maxle to put on my bike and am wondering if other than looking for “boost spacing 12 mm rear Maxle” , is there any other characteristics that I need to look for?
Check with your shop to see what the threading is for the rear axle. There are a couple different axle threadings out there and you have to be sure to get the right one. For instance, DT Swiss rear axles have finer threads than the Maxle.
