Busted the 12x148 rear axle on my '21 Optic. PDF says M12x1 thread, which seems...unusual. Axle measures 180mm long.*

Anyone able to verify replacement axle thread, size, or a source? Any info appreciated. Cheers

*Edit: 172mm if not including top cap in measurement. No idea which measurement is used for replacement purposes.

Hey, if you have a 2021 Optic then you will want to get an axle with an M12x1 thread pitch. This is so that it work with the SRAM UDH hanger (besides the one the bike comes with). The length is 174mm measured from the underside of the head washer to the end of the axle. Also make sure the replacement axle you get has at least 13mm of threaded length to ensure it does not bottom out on the hanger before clamping down on the hub!

Cheers, perfect info. Beer

I ended up getting an MRP L:173mm P:M12x1

1mm shorter, but fits mint
