Disc-brakes on cyclocross and roadbikes are here to stay. They offer more brake power but also imply different forces on frame and fork. Therefore new axle standards such as the 12mm thru axle are necesssary. Furthermore they are stiffer and lighter than the conventional axle standards.
The conversion kit 12x100mm will be soon available!
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES?
12mm True axles are siffer than the conventional standards such as true axle 9mm and quick release 9mm
They offer weight advantages compared to conventional standards
