    Fantastic product. Good quality. Great service!
    I’m now able to put my Specialized Stumpjumper on my BKool trainer and put in some kms when I can’t get outdoors.
    Perfect fit on both the bike and the trainer.
    Very fast delivery to Sydney Australia as well.
    Thank you The Robert Axle Project!

    It appear that this product is popular with Australian Specialized Stumpjumper owners.

    This product was spot on for my bike and JetBlack trainer. I did fit a slick road tyre to my bike to reduce noise. The axle great quality and the perfect way to rehab from hip surgery.

    Great product, works well to connect my 142/12 thru axle bike to the trainer. Really quick shipping and delivery.

    This is exactly what I needed. I got this for my 2017 Specialized Roubaix and it fits perfectly with the included washer. My friend got something similar for his brother and he said it was much more than the price here. I really recommend this product!

    Amazing product!!!! Got me up and training on my trainer two days after I placed my order!!! As far a customer service goes, they are tops…… I wish everything in this country would run as smooth as these guys!!!!

    Great Product. Great quality. Great service. The Perfect solution for my BMC Roadmachine 03 to workout on my Wahoo Kickr Snap or go straight for a ride.

  10. Gerry (verified owner)

    This is a great option! I’m able to use my main mountain bike on a kinetic trainer through the cold months without much hassle.

  11. Bernard Rosenberg (verified owner)

    Excellent design, very fine machining, and quick delivery. This thru axle allows my wife’s custom Seven Cycles bike to be used on her trainer during the icy periods of winter.

    For awesome! Great product! 2018 Specialized Roubaix

  13. Jon Einar Høystad (verified owner)

    The survey (Axle Finder) came out with the axle that fitted perfectly for my Scott Scale mountain bike and my Tacx Flow Smart trainer.
    Delivery of the axle was on time. This is the second axle I buy from these guys, and I am very happy with the service and evrything.

  14. Don Nymann (verified owner)

    Fantastic product & quality! I only needed one of the included spacers for my bike. The end caps are burly and are like those on a traditional quick release skewer. It installed like a breeze and now my thru-axle bike is securely mounted in my CycleOps smart trainer. This is a vastly superior solution compared to the manufacturer’s thru-axle “solution”.

  15. John Coffman (verified owner)

    The axel fit great – the cones could be a bit larger to fit the trainer cups- my trainer is an older Blackburn Fluid trainer and had to make a shim to level up the axel in the trainer.

  16. Robert Watt (verified owner)

    If you never think about your axles that’s a good thing. I bought one of these to ride a trainer and it’s worked great.

  17. Steven Waller (verified owner)

    Used the Axel Finder to come up with this for my 2018 Canyon Spectral AL 6.0 and it fits perfect. Works well in combination with my STAC Zero trainer.

  18. Jennifer Wilkinson (verified owner)

    Solid, high-quality axle! Made in the USA. Works well with my Cannondale Top Stone and Cyclops pro trainer. Really great idea/company. Keep the good stuff coming.

  19. Brent Lind (verified owner)

    This was the perfect solution for mounting my Allez Sprint Disc to a Wahoo Kickr Snap. I have no idea how I would have accomplished this without RAP products. I’m a fan and will probably be putting these axles on all my bikes. Thanks!

  20. Kelly DeBoer (verified owner)

    Fits my 2018 Specialized Diverge carbon nicely for use on my old trainer. Best part is when weather allows, you can roll out the door and onto the backyard trails without changing things over.

  21. Jessica Songer (verified owner)

    Completely satisfied with the product! Speedy delivery time as well!! I will recommend the products to all my bike friends. My friend recommended me as well, so I will keep it going. Thank you so much. I can now ride on my smart trainer!

  22. John (verified owner)

    Great product, flawless experience setting up the purchase and getting the right axle for my Specialized Venge. Thank you to everybody at The Robert Axle Project!!

  23. Chloe (verified owner)

    So simple and easy! As a relative novice, was overwhelmed by other online resources and had no idea what axle I needed. Took the axle finder quiz, it was delivered rapidly and fits my bike and trainer perfectly!

  24. Santiago (verified owner)

    It does what it is supposed to do, got my scott scale 940 on my trainer, but haven’t been able to go to the trails yet.
    The find your axle tool worked great to identify the one I needed.

  25. Rufat Aliev (verified owner)

    Fits perfectly, weights less then the original and worked beautifully on my Tacx Satori. The axle has to drawbacks. Buy it!

  26. Steven Loya (verified owner)

    The product fits without issue on my Specialized Sequoia Elite. Great quality, and no issues with delivery or ordering.

  27. John V (verified owner)

    Worked well to fit my cross bike onto our old 1UP trainer. Well made, great fit, arrived quickly.

  28. Matt Haber (verified owner)

    This went on a Specialized Creo, to enable its use on a wheel-on trainer. Simple to install, and it works. A little pricey, but it’s not a mass market part. I also liked the website tool that helped me find the right axle. I could have done it by measuring and looking up, but this was easier.

  29. Lu (verified owner)

    The axle finder feature worked well to find the correct axle adapter to use with my 2019 Specialized Diverge and Wahoo Kickr Snap smart trainer. It shows the company did their research and development as the fit was perfect for the bike frame.

  30. Anthony P (verified owner)

    This is a great product. I was able to buy the correct thru axel for my bike. Shipping was fast and easy. It took less than 5 minutes to install the axel. I was up and running on my indoor trainer in no time.

  31. John Price (verified owner)

    Managed to order the correct one – yipee! Used the Roberts guide to select the axle and choice confirmed by a member of Robert’s staff. Works perfectly.

  32. Craig C. (verified owner)

    Saved our ass! We had a couple Saris M2 smart trainers that were set up for quick release…our new Specialized Diverge Comp EO5 gravel bikes were solid thru axles, we bought 2 of the;

    Fit perfect, quick shipping…solid communication. Saved our ass! Thanks so much!

  33. Evan

    I was led astray by a local bike shop and ended up ordering the wrong axle. Luckily for me, Tory and the customer service crew were super helpful and got me sorted in no time. I haven’t had such an easy and efficient customer service experience… ever. Shout out to The Robert Axle Project for keeping their customers happy! 10/10 would recommend.

  34. Gerald (verified owner)

    Great product. Everything arrived intact. Fit onto my bike and trainer perfectly with spacers. Even more awesome by the fact I can take off trainer and hit the road with axle in place, love it THANKS!!!

  35. Enrique (verified owner)

    Love it!!!
    Fits perfectly and I love that I don’t have to change it to ride outdoors! Great product! Thank you!

    My bike trainer, “1up USA CPR A-2000 Bicycle Trainer” was used with my older bikes that used the skewer as the attachment to the trainer. With my newer bike, Specialized Roubaix, it has flush thru axles that made the trainer unusable. Through help from 1up USA they recommended Robert Axle Project. After using the “Thru Axle Finder” on the Robert Axle Project site I found the thru axle for my Roubaix; a “12mm Thru Axle for Trainer: 160 to 172mm with 1.0 Thread”. The order was placed and a few days later the axle arrived and it quickly went on the bike and in the trainer. The whole process was seamless.
