Ah cool- the original shots of the latest maxle lite (without the nut opposite the lever) had a slightly different design and weren’t backwards compatible, I guess that changed before production. Slightly lighter too
The design of the maxle, the current one anyway, has seemingly been optimised for strength and weight. It’s not like the good old days when hope would produce a slinky gorgeous anodised qr lever which could be retro fitted.
I’ve spent a lot of time looking at the maxle and similar and they may in the future have a standard which may then create an aftermarket worth making stuff for.
Oh they don’t. dissapointment here.. Although I always liked the 20mm maxle on my totems. Is it really an issue? Have you found it to be too bulky whilst riding or just when trying to fit it in places it was not designed for?
