    Through axles for new bike build

    I'm just building up a new S5 Disc in a 54 and looking at replacing the RAT through axles with something lighter. Likely Carbon TI's or equally lighter alternatives. Where I ride flats are extremely infrequent and can re install the RAT's when travelling to more troublesome locals. The quick question is do any of you have experience or recommendations for lighter through axle alternatives on your Cervelo's. Just wish to make sure I do not order an axle that does not fit the S5. Seems like there's many different lengths etc. Appreciate.

    Check out the configuration tool at https://robertaxleproject.com/focus-rat-12mm-thru-axle/

    Here are the results for the rear wheel with axle specs and as well the part number for the new derailleur hanger that will be needed. https://robertaxleproject.com/shop/lightning-bolt-on-axle-rear-12-mm-x-170-mm-x-1-75-thread/

    Thanks robg. Will investigate your link and appreciate the spec's. Had no idea I needed a different hanger so maybe move back and forth from the RAD to a typical threaded through axles is not as easy as I thought. You have nice taste in bikes! Cheers
