Who is running 12 x 142 on rear...
So, I got all of about 5 rides on my El Rey in last fall (baby, new house, job went nuts, family health issues etc).
So, while I am on the fence about selling it (I may do some endurance racing next season and sell both it and my giant carbon 29er hardtail to go to a 29er FS that is a bit lighter) in the meantime I am going to get it built up for next season.
I do have the 12 x 142 rear dropouts. My understanding is that the MAXLE won't work as the bearing for the pivot gets in the way. So, I have the Shimano insert for their AX-75 QR.
I thought I had heard a lighter replacement was coming for the AX-75, but just finding the AX-75 is hard enough.
So, wondering if there is a thru-bolt alternative that would work with either the maxle dropout, or the shimano insert.
Figure it might save a few oz and be just as easy.
