Using thru axles to secure wheels to frames and forks is the best possible method available. They are superior in concept, but the lack by the bicycle industry of a common standard has been a nightmare for some people. Thru axles can greatly increase the stiffness of the interface between the hub and the dropouts, also giving the hub a unique mounting position to improve the interface between caliper and rotor on bikes with disc brakes. Whether it comes down to the difference between front and rear standards, diameter and axle thread pitch, and a confusing list of dropout widths, there are many standards to sift through. Also unfortunate is the fact that there aren’t many places to find good answers to questions about compatibility. Most manufacturers of frames do not even post the standards that they currently are using. In the chance that you lose your stock axle or want to upgrade, this absence of information can be very frustrating. That is why we are taking the time to try to clarify a few issues.
A Common Misunderstanding: Firstly, understand that DT Swiss manufactures thru axles for just about every possible standard. Try not to expect that just because your current thru axle has a DT logo it uses this DT standard. There is a big possibility that it is some other standard chosen or developed by the manufacturer with a stock axle that DT Swiss simply manufactured.
The E-thru Mystery: “E-Thru”, a Shimano-developed standard, has several standards that use the E-Thru label. Use of internal or external threading, dropout thickness and use of an external, replaceable nut are all used to determine if the axle fits your frame. For example, a basic E-Thru 142 axle also fits many E-Thru Boost 148 frames, while the standard E-Thru axle may be too long for many E-thru 142 frames because they require a shorter model. We strongly advise that you measure the actual length of your existing E-Thru axle when ordering a replacement. Don’t expect that because your frame has Boost 148 and uses E-Thru that it requires the E-Thru Boost 148 axle, as this may not be the case.
What About Sizing? There are 4 main characteristics to consider when deciding on the proper thru axle for your bicycle frame or fork:
