    I purchased 2 sets of thru-axles from The Robert Axle Project. One set was for a cross bike and the other for a fat bike. Thus far both have performed flawlessly. Especially noticable is the weight difference and stiffness vs the stock axles. Thanks guys for a great product.

    Got 2 axles for my Rocky Mountain Blizzard -50. Lighter stiffer and much neater then the original axles! I would often knock my ankle on the rear axle when pushing the bike over deep snow, not anymore. Very fast delivery too highly recommaded.

    Replaced my Trek Farleys fork axle with this. Trek has some of the better QR thru-axles but they aren’t better than these. Strong low profile axle is just the ticket to give me peace of mind when I’m away from my bikes and they are locked to the rack. QR’s just make it easier for theft. I carry a mini tool so I decided it’s not much of a problem if I need to pull the wheel. I have one on my Stache and Stumpjumper also.

    Got a set of F&R axles for a Haibike Fatsix. They simply do bolt on in place of standard axle, no problem whatsoever. BUT the rear axle was for a trailer, specifically a Berger coupling (as specified in the order). This one needs a notch under the coupling to take up rotation force when load works behind. This notch was not present and I had to take off quite some material which was a tedious task with a small grinder and surely voids any warranty. Sorry boys but you should look into this.

    2. Add at least one key to install and remove your Hexlox system. You will receive a key which matches the Hexlox you order. Order multiple keys if you want a spare.
    3. For other all other components, check your bike for what you want to secure. Options include Hexlox’s that fit in 4mm, 5mm and 6mm bolts, so check your bike and purchase what you need!
