    Bought this axle for my 2019 Pivot Mach 6. Excellent part! Would 100% recommend! Well worth the money!

  5. Michael F. (verified owner)

    This axle was a perfect replacement for my Frey AM1000 rear axle. I had the axle set up to accept the Hexlox security nut and it was one minute to swap it out. Now I have a strong axle that is protected from thieves.
