    Rack talk - Maxle = Adapter or King Cobra?

    Picked up the Pitch Pro with a front thru axle set up...20mm Maxle - Is it easy enough to break down and use an adapter with my Viper carrier or such a pain that I'd be better off with a King Cobra carrier?

    Thanks!

    Get a King Cobra or other comparable tire-holding carrier.

    In my experience, the 20mm TA converters require you to re-tension your maxle to accomodate the width of the adapter (which is mms off of the width of your hub) and therefor is a big PITA>

    I have a King Cobra and really like it. Reasonably secure, and easy to use. No wheel removal is very nice because one of my bike isn't Maxle, and uses bolt on 20mm lowers which is annoying if you have to remove all the time.
