    Quick release axles for V2 frames

    To my amazement, it turned out that I am taking off my rear wheel way too often these days. I am using 150mm axle on my Rune V2, and after all these cassette swaps I have been doing lately left my axle with damaged wrench socket.

    So to ease my pain. Is it possible to get some sort of quick release for V2 bikes. I am eyeing DT RWS atm, and I have found other possibilities as well.

    So, anyone with a similar problem?

    Why are you taking your rear wheel off so often? And what hub is it?

    The frame uses the maxle axle standard, so a maxle light will go straight in there if you want to run a QR system and don't care about extra weight.

    I'm running 135 dropouts but am loving the RWS. If I had the option to run maxle, I would do that tho.
