    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.

    I finally got around to ordering one of these. This was the only product that I could find that fit Trek's extra-long ABP design (192mm for 142mm hub) and I'm sure glad I wasn't in a hurry to get it. Package shipped (economy) from Kiev over 2 weeks ago, got scanned in Queens, NY within a few days, but is now in Honolulu. Seems like an odd route to get to Cedar Park, TX. It's actually still within the estimated delivery range, but I'm really surprised that an item this small could possibly take so long to ship from anywhere in the world given today's advanced logistics. All of the reviews for this seller are great although some others also complained about the shipping duration.

    I ended up getting one of these for my hardtail. It's basically the same as a stealth maxle. All kinds of widths and pitches on there. It's up to you to do that research, but places like MTBR are useful for that.

    Just pull your old one out and it should have all the information you need labeled on it, thread pitch etc.

    Yep that was the easy part - 192mm with 20mm/1.75 thread. Actually finding one in that size was the tricky part. The only 2 items I found were this one from Hardlite ($29.99) and another from Carbon-Ti for like ninety bucks. The 192mm length is apparently unique to Trek. Good news is that the package is actually in Austin now and I should have it in a day or two.

    Sometime frustrating yet fun to watch the absurd journey a package makes on its way to you
