    2018 Trance Advanced 1 which thru axle ?

    I wanted to replace the thru axle that requires an allen wrench on my 2018 Trance advanced 1 with one that has the little handle on it but I don't know the size or which one to go with. I saw some on the dt swiss site but I don't know about the size or if boost makes any difference. ANy help would be greatly appreciated. I wanted one for the front and back.

    If your fork is Fox, which I believe it is, get a Fox one. It is boost. Boost in the rear also. Why do you want it for the rear?

    It does have the Fox 34 elite. The reason I ask is convenience on the trail if I need to address a flat. I just came noticed this one on Jenson, anyone familiar if this handle (lever) just connects to the existing thru axle that came with the bike.

    My recommendation would be to convert to tubeless.

    Just bring a 6mm hex with you. You probably have one anyway.
    I was considering swapping out a through axle also, so that if I needed to throw the bike in the car, it would be more convenient to remove the front wheel. Turns out it's just not much of an issue.

    The bike should have come tubeless. As often as you'll have to remove wheels, I'd keep the stock thru axles. Keep a hex wrench rolled up in your emergency tube.

    I'd suggest you get Specialized bottle cage with the little EMT tool on the end. This is great combo and keep tooled axles on the bike since they're lighter and won't catch trail obstacles.
