    Carbon SS race bike 142x12 rear?

    Hi all, getting the bug for a new carbon ss race bike to replace steel. What options are out there for 142x12 rear? I'm not sold on 142x12 as "must have" but just seeing most bikes are going this direction I might as well start my focus here. TIA

    Just buy a Pivot LES and be done with it. I will never understand the point of a 142mm through axle on a hardtail aside from conforming to a new standard.
