  • This Robert Axle thru axle for FollowMe Tandem Coupling replaces your stock 12 mm thru axle.
  • The true length of the axle shaft is 172 mm but can be shortened using the included spacers – a flat spacer and a tapered X-12 spacer. This allows for axle lengths of 160, 167 or 172 mm. Please note: Thru-axle lengths do not equal hub standards. An axle has to be longer than the hub to fit in the frame. A 12×142 hub does not equal a 142mm long axle.
  • This axle has a 1.0 mm thread pitch.
  • The axle shaft and axle end are precision CNC machined.
  • The axle shaft is 7075 aluminum and hard black anodized for rugged durability.
  • The axle ends are stainless steel, which allow for mounting of the FollowMe Tandem.
  • No special tools are required. Design allows for installation or wheel removal using your standard 5mm hex wrench.
  • Please note: This axle does not come with the FollowMe Tandem Coupling hardware. You will need to use the hardware that came with your FollowMe.
  • Designed, built and quality tested in the USA. Proven around the world.

    Does what it says!
    I was looking to connect the FollowMe Tandem for my sun to my new bike which featured a thru axle instead of a quick release one. The Robert Axle Project was recommended to me by a big German merchant, who themselves did not stock a suitable item. I found the required axle quickly on the website, ordered it, received it swiftly and it works. Many thanks!

    Super fast delivery to Belgium. 4 days.
    And it is perfect for my Specialized Vado Turbo 3.0 to connect a follow me tandem.
    Thank youuuu

  6. Simon (verified owner)

    I ordered a Follow Me and I would have needed two original axles to connect it with both of my bikes. This axle was cheaper and fits to both bikes. It is my perfect solution. The delivery to Germany was even faster than the delivery of the Follow Me out of a German retailer.
    I can absolutely recommend this product as well as the company!!

    Bought two. One for my wife’s bike and one for mine. Both came very quickly in the mail (even though I live in Europe.

    Both fit perfectly. Thanks
