    New question here. QR or Thru axle?

    For those of you riding spots, do you prefer qr or thru axle for the rear? It seems as if the rear is burly enough to ride with a qr although the thru axle might make that much of a difference. Now if they only made something like the maxle for the rear
    It's all cycle-logical to me.

    For my new hoops, I went with the 10 mm (I think) through axle option from Hadley. It uses two 5 mm allen keys to tighten/loosen and is pretty slick.

    Honestly though, I have no idea if it is really any stiffer, but it is fun when somebody occasionally asks if your quick release fell off!
