    Upgrades for rear axle lever

    The plastic DT Swiss lever on the 142 rear axle is so flimsy and flexi, I am afraid I am going to break it every time I use it, or when another bike leans on it. Is there any aluminum version of the lever or another axle with better lever?

    There is a metal version. It came standard on my TBLT and Bronson.

    Does anyone know if I can get it aftermarket? The Santa Cruz online store does not have it. Should be a standard DT Swiss part.
