    Thru-axle Replacement

    I need to replace the QR 12X142 thru-axle on my 2014 Trek Remedy and I'm learning that it's not as simple as going to the bike shop and asking for a new 12X142 thru-axle. After checking online, it looks like I can order one of these and lose the QR, which would be my preference. Anybody done this? They don't have this model bike listed on their website, so I'd have to do some measuring using the provided templates and also match the thread pattern exactly. What I f'n love about standards is that there are so many to choose from (sarcasm).

    Just bought one of those maxle stealth off ebay for under $23 delivered for my wifes rig. Measured the chainstay width and found the closest match, think it was 180mm.

    I do have a leftover 142 maxle if needed.

    I bought a HardLite axle from Ebay. Very pleased with it. Finding the correct thread pitch and length was kind if a pain.

    The Trek ABP maxle is a little longer than "standard", BTWs. Not sure why.

    Just installed the maxle stealth. Looks much cleaner than QR.
