  • This Robert Axle thru axle for FollowMe Tandem Coupling replaces your stock 12 mm thru axle.
  • The true length of the axle shaft is 178 mm but can be shortened using the included 6 mm or 3 mm spacer. This allows for axle lengths of 178, 175, 172, or 169 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 142 mm long axle.
  • This axle has a 1.5 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.

    I haven’t been able to get this on the bike yet b/c the bike is backordered, but these guys were super helpful in getting the right thing selected.

    We thought we would have to stop using our Follow-Me when we upgraded our mountain bikes, so I was happy to find this website! It was very easy to select the exact size we needed, and I especially liked that it made you confirm the bike make and model at checkout. The adapter looks very professionally made and fits perfectly on our bikes.
