    Shift Up! Pike Axle

    Anyone had luck finding these in the US? They won't ship to the US and ordering from a site such as r2-bike throws on another outrageous 25 Euro charge on top of the 59 Euro purchase price.

    I've got one. From r2. Couldn't find anywhere in the states. Ordered from them, but with a few other things to take some of the shipping sting away.

    Works well, no issues after a few months.

    Seems like the only issue would happen if you ham-fisted it and either screw up the threads, or round out the allen bits.

    I'd rather see it with a larder size allen, and deeper engagement to prevent that, but again, meh.

    Shouldn't be an issue so long as I'm careful.

    Thanks for the response. Trying to decide between the shift up, carbon ti and extralite but nobody seems to have any of them in stock in the US. Going to get gouged on shipped whatever I decide.

    Also heard there was a NON QR maxle 15mm axle made by sram but haven't had any luck tracking down such a thing...

    The few things like that I've seen (other than the Euro made ones) have all been one-off things for pros.

    I'll be very surprised if SRAM ever does one. Hell, they never even did a bolt up 20mms axle for their smaller forks.
