While I admit that really enjoyed the political and financial speculations about the True Lizard Lordz, let me take this thread back to the original topic. I’m probably idealistic and or naive with all these BS “standards”, as just ended up being at the wrong end of the dick when ordering my new shiny hard tail frame. Bike comes with 12x142 rear end so I was happy, assuming my nice Syntace X12 rear axle would be a fit. I was terribly wrong, as after some googling I realized that there are 3different thread pitch dimensions used for these 12mmrear axles and of course the one I need is the Rock shox version. Long, and silent applause for me failing miserably, and to the bike industry being unable to settle on one freaking parameter. Effin retards, I hate you all!!!
