    2012 Canfield one rear Axle

    Changing my rear tire , I moved the bike into the garage and someone took my rear axle from where I left it .

    Called and no replacement .

    Told to get Rock Shock Maxle

    Got it

    142 x 12 is way too long

    Contact surface is slightly larger than machined recess in frame .

    135 x 12 looks llike it will work but the contact area will be altered in tightening .

    Suggestions please .

    I want to ride .

    Thanks in advance .

    How odd. For some reason I thought they used Syntace compatible specs - but don't know for sure?

    Syntace X-12 System 142x12mm Axle

    Do you need measurements from my stock axle?

    I think those have a tappered face , not flat

    The 142 Maxle seems to be made for a much wider frame build

    I recently did a trip out to Oregon to ride an left my axle in my garage. Found one of these at a local shop: DT Swiss RWS X-12 Alloy | Chain Reaction Cycles

    Maxle and these are longer than the Canfield stock axle so I bought some washers at the hardware store to go between head of axle and frame. Threads were correct and it worked for the trip. I would sell the DT Axle I have if you are interested, it didn't look elegant with the washers but it worked.
