    Meta 6 axle issue

    I've recently got a Meta6 frame, which I built up.
    I upgraded the rear shock to an RP23, as apperently the other jobbie was'nt up to scratch.

    My question is to anyone that might have experience with this bike.

    The rear feels overly drifty and wavy when cruising singletrack at speed.
    The rear feels like it wants to drift beyond all the time, especially when taking mild corners at speed.
    A touch un-nerving, and I dont like being forced to feather the brakes.

    The bike has QR skewer on the rear, and I've heard that if you convert to 12mm maxle it helps stiffen up the rear.
    I'm running tubeless Mavvic xm819's with Schwabble Fat Alberts.

    Could it be the tyres?
    Would the change to 12mm maxle stiffen it up any, and/or would it be worth the 100 odd to change the hangers and buy a maxlelite?

    Your expertize welcomed!

    We have maxle in our test bike, I think it's worth it

    Cheers for the reply.
    I know the new carbon swinging arm comes standard with the maxle, I guess thats the way to go.
