    What thru axle do I need?

    Hi, I am currently building a bike and I do not have a thru axle to measure the threads by. My frame is a cube reaction with the 12*142mm hub spacing. The dropout is a cube 2090 AXH SRAM spec. Does anybody know what thru axel I need with what threads? I was thinking a DT swiss RWS E-thru.

    Thanks

    If it's a Cube I'm 99% sure that you need a Syntace X12 compatible thru axle.

    Forgot to add that you if you look at your NDS dropout it will be conical on the outside if it's a Syntace X12 system.

    That's great thanks for your help, I'm not sure what you mean by "NDS" and "conical". I'm new to learning to build a bike and learn all the parts it's my first time

    DS = drive side = the side where you chainring and cassette are.
    NDS = non drive side = the side where the cassette and chainring are not .

    If you look at the picture below you will see that the side that contact your NDS dropout is conical/tapered, instead of flat. This is unique to the Syntace X12 system.
    The X12 uses an M12x1.0 thread.

    No wait I am wrong, the story Swiss rws was for the front fork not the frame, that wraps things up then. Thanks for your help I'll have to look into x-12 thru axles. Also saw an x-12 axel sold by cube themselves.

    It says X12 rear axle in the description. If your sram hangar is not x12 you're boned.

    Oh yeah I never saw that, thanks for your help. It should be, there is a link to the hanger I have on the same site, and it is cube and everything, hopefully it's all good. Thanks for help

    Ah yeah the hanger says x-12 aswell. Posting on the forum wasn't a waste of time though because I didn't even know about any of the axel standards!
