    Love this rear axle. Been wanting to look for a more solid, lightweight, replacement for the rear, and this is exactly what i was looking for. would recommend this for anyone wanting a solid rear axle to replace the stock factory lever setup.

    I searched far and wide for the right axle … many promised, many failed to deliver. Robert Axle Project had exactly what I needed … and more. Superb customer service, super-fast delivery, and a superior product in every way.

    Awesome axle! Replaced the faulty cam axle on my road bike and riding with confidence now.

    Ordered directly from RoberAxleProject and got it within two days after messing around with an online retailer. Thanks for the great service and great product.

    Ordered for my 2017 DB HAANJO. Shimano thruaxle was noisy as hell ! really annoying. Installed the lighting bolts, love em’ , simple, expertly engineered and machined piece. Cleans up the appearance, totally quiet and bombproof. I’ll be ordering a trainer specific thru axle this fall.

  12. Richard Comroe (verified owner)

    Very well made product! Shipping was extremely fast and I’m 100% satisfied. The axle won’t accidentally loosen since it has no QR and is tightened by a hex key. Highly recommended!

  13. Richard Samonte (verified owner)

    Had to settle for this, wish they would make one more sized a bit bigger 172-178 is a big jump. Needed one in the middle.

    It does the job tho

    Fit and finish still good.

    Awesome new axle for my gravel steed. Very lightweight yet strong at the same time. Careful thought was put into this axle. Also, painlessly determining which axle I needed was very cool. I ended up going with a Robert Axle just recently when I needed a trainer axle. Super quick turnaround time was appreciated as well, 3 days!
