    AC29er: 142mm rear axle?

    Just wondering, if I remember correctly I read a review on the AC29er around summer 2012. The author claimed that the 135mm rear axle of his test bike would be replaced by 142mm in the final bike setup. However, I donīt see this option for the current 2013 model. Anybody knows if there is a plan to give a 142mm rear dropout for the 2014 model?

The overall surcharge is € 100.00. Those upgrades were unveiled at 2013 Lake Garda Bike Festival (Trentino, IT).

    It would have made wheel choices a little different. At least I know I can change it in the future if I decide to go that way.
