    Epic 2014 with Rockshox Rebe RL 29 - looking for other 15mm axle options than Maxle?

    Hi,

    I just bought a 2014 Epic Camp Carbon, with a Reba RL 29 with 15mm axle.

    The stock Maxle lite axle is a really flimsy piece of hardware, and I am looking for any other axle options, that will fit the Reba RL 29.

    Is there anything suitable on the market? I kind of like the DT Swiss RWS for the rear axle, is there a RWS available for the Reba?

    I had the same concern with my RS SID. I think they are proprietary so there may not be any aftermarket options. I'm not 100% sure of this but I was looking for the same thing.

    I actually broke off part of my stock Maxel. And I was having issues with the front hub having slack in it, even with the Maxel at full tension.

    The solution? The Maxel from the RockShox Pike is a direct fit for the Reba forks! This Maxel is a much better design and puts some side load on the front hub like a standard quick release dose. See if you can get your LBS to order one of the new Pike Maxels for ya.

    Also the revelation uses the regular maxle. Not quite as cored out as the light version.
