    2011 jekyll owners - rear wheel QR option?

    Hey guys, just picked up a 2011 jekyll 5 yesterday to replace my Prophet 2MX . Just got a quick question about the rear thru axle. Is there any option or compatible system to convert the rear axle to a thru axle 12mm quick release??

    From previous experience of getting a rear punture in my propjhet, changing the tube is not a fun experience!!!

    cheers

    The thru axle comes off quickly with a 5mm allen key. Why would you want to make the rear end less stiff a quick release is flimsy.

    DT Swiss do a version that needs no tools called the RWS X-12.

    Thanks guys.

    It's too new for me to have even tried taking the back wheels off yet.

    Cheers!
