Posted on 28th, August 2013 about 9mm Front QR Through Axle
The added stiffness is great, but the QR mech is squeaky and not very easy to operate (compared to the "etalon" XT QR mech), and the worst thing is that the nut is very slippery and hard to grab, since it is a flat, polished surface. This design I cannot understand why they did not copy the XT nut which is - again - lightyears better. Shouldn't have cost a penny to do it right. In the end I went for the new DT Swiss QR, however if you don't remove your first wheel too often and are looking for a budget solution this one will do.
