    I would like to know this as well. I have an 06 Rogue with the older style rear dropout / thruaxle. The solid steel 12mm axle that comes with the bike must weigh about 1 pound by itself. I think the newer Rogues have a lighter rear axle setup. But, if there is a way to replace the heavy rear axle on the Rogue with something lighter, I would definitely be interested. A while back, I tried to find a suitable axle from Beyondbikes. I ordered what I thought would work, but it was too short.

    Where did you pick up the new DIY axle? I was thinking about checking one of the large hardware / home improvement places like Home Depot.

    Last year, I purchased a Hadley 12mm thruaxle that turned out to be too short for the older Rogue rear ends (like mine). I think the newer Rogues can use a shorter thruaxle.
