  1. Dean Kathron (verified owner)

    Excellent fit and finish. Much lighter than thru axles that were on my bike.
    Definitely recommending Robert Axle Project to my friends and family.

  2. Ilia (verified owner)

    Replaced bulky stock through axles that came with my road bike with those one. Like this update: much cleaner look of a bike and weight reduction. May be not a best option for a mountain bike, as bulky throgh axles with handle give some protection to a frame. But if you don’t have intentions to crash often, buy those.

    P.S. Do not forget to compare thread on stock axles and those one before installing.
