    Fantom Ti 29/27.5 plus Boost rear thru axle question

    So I went with the frame/fork option. Looks fantastic but I was disappointed to see there was no rear thru axle included with the frame. I am trying to figure out which one I need to get and what brands will work. Does anyone have this bike or frame so you cal let me know? I did not see any info on Bikesdirect for this spec.

    Did you get this problem solved? If so, what are the specs on the rear axle and what did you choose? Thanks!

    Not to step on Ranger's toes but I PM'd him and this is the reply:

    "It's a 1.75 pitch thru axle and you need it 180mm long. I bought the Maxle bolt on thru axle in this configuration and it worked perfectly."

    Sorry I missed following up on this one earlier. The Maxle thru bolt with 1.75 pitch works perfectly. That said they really should have included one with the fram/fork only option.

    Can you post a link of the exact axle you bought, please?

    Thanks!

    Here is a picture. I bought it off eBay but I would imagine you could get it from several sources.
