    The "Maxle" only works with RockShox forks designed to use it.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    The forks are threaded, The maxle screws into the fork...

    EDIT: ***SPAM*** I have a 20mm qr axle that cam with my ft. hub. I have a Maxle fork, so PM me if you want it..

    Not completely true. There are bikes that use a Maxle for the rear thru-axle.

    A 20mm Rockshox Maxle?

    "Maxle" is a Rockshox trademark name and the OP asked specifically about forks.

    Yes, but that is a different width Maxle than the Pike fork lower specific Maxle.

    And there are a few companies jumping on that, but I've yet to hear of any of those frames actually for sale to the average Joe yet. I believe they are still in development stages, not yet released.

    Yes, he did ask about forks. All I wanted to add is that maxles are being added to the rear of bikes now, not just RS forks. Rear thru-maxle:

    to answer your question (OP's): Yes, you can buy just the Maxel. Talk to your lbs. I think I saw them for about $14 but I can't remember where. I wonder if I saw it listed at AEBIKES.com (QEB)??? or maybe the my Pike manual or on the RS website???

    EDIT: here's a link to order one: $23 at >

    Interesting.... rear Maxle and Post Mount disc. That's a Yeti, is it not? I heard RS is using the PM for 07 too. Looks like it is on its way to winning out over IS.
