2014 Epic: 142 mm x 12 mm QR axle available aftermarket?
Has a manufacturer brought out an aftermarket QR 142 mm x 12 axle to fit the 2014 Roval/Epic rear end?
I've found a company that sells a quick release version of the bolt thru 142 mm x 12 mm axle. They sell axles to fit E-12 and X-12 set ups but wondering if one of the two will fit? - Wiggle | Black Series Rear Thru Axles | Quick Release Skewers
You need an X-12 compatible rear thru axle to fit in a Specialized frame with 142x12mm rear dropouts. There are a few companies that make them. Here are some alternatives from a quick look.
Tune DC12 X-12
Bike24 - Tune DC 12 Quick Release for X-12 Thru Axle
Bike24 - Syntace X-12 Thru-axle
DT Swiss RWS X-12
Bike24 - DT Swiss RWS Thru Bolt MTB Thru Axle with Alloy Lever
KCNC 12mm X 142mm Skewer : Fairwheel Bikes, Cycling Boutique
None of them are truly quick release because you still have to unthread the axle and pull it out of the frame before the wheel can be removed.
