Thru Axle for FollowMe Tandem: 12×142 or Boost for R.A.T. Equipped Bikes

(1 customer review)

$ 72.00

This thru axle allows you to specifically attach a FollowMe Tandem Coupling to your thru axle equipped bike. The FollowMe Tandem Coupling allows to attach your kid’s bike to your bike when they become tired or no longer want to ride on their own. It’s great for when the going gets tough, or just for fun.

An additional benefit you will experience, once you switch to our threaded thru axle, when riding outside with this axle your disc brake will no longer rub. This is due to the more consistent and greater clamping force of a threaded thru axle vs the RAT system. Consider our Lightning Bolt-on Front axle to rid your bike of the flex from the R.A.T.

This thru axle is only compatible with bikes that have the R.A.T. thru axle system and 12×142 or Boost hub spacing. M12x1.5 threaded replacement nut included, to replace the R.A.T. nut that came on your bike.
