    Cheesy thru axle on my Reba

    The QR cam keeps coming loose, on my thru axle on my Reba, making my front wheel loose. Took it to shop they advised buying a new one. Said SRAM would not warranty it due to "wear". It's less that a year old. What gives?? Any experiences with this?

    Is it this style axle?

    if so you might be able to replace it with the new style that comes on the pike. As that is what we are going to try on my wifes sektor as her lever is always coming loose and i constantly have to tighten it up and then also the stupid metal that you push the qr lever against to loosen the axle has gotten all torn up and has sharp edges now. I am actually going to pick up the Pike style axle today. here is an image of it

    no, it has some grooves in the shaft, i assume to save weight. it is not shown on the Sram site.
