    Change to Solid Axle instead of QR

    There is a stealth type axle to replace the 12mm QR on the new Troy's and Django's. Has anyone done this and how well does the axle stay tight.

    Second ride and I've already smashed the gigantic lever on the QR.

    Yes, I hear ya. I too hate those giant levers on thru-axles. That's why we produce our Lightning Bolt-on axles.
    These fit the both the Troy or Django in Boost sizing:

    Fanatik Bike sells one for $24 plus about $2.80 shipping. Weight is identical to the stock axle and its giant hook/lever.

    Hey, that's actually what I went with.

    I just bought front and rear replacement axles from the Robert Axle Project for my 16 Troy. Gives it a much cleaner low profile look, they are very nice axles.
