Spesh 142 Rear axle options
Ive just bought a spesh stumpy evo expert 13′ which i believe come with spesh’s 142+ dropouts. With it coming from bikescene i believe these are warranty frames??
Checking the parts box theres no rear axle.
Can anyone tell me before i order if this will fit?
After looking around it seems theres a few different 142 x 12 standards and some will fit and others with different threads wont.
Any ideas guys before i order the above?

No, that won’t fit.
The NDS dropout is tapered, so won’t fit a normal axle, you need a conical head on it.
You can buy them directly from Specialized, for a lot of money. Which if you do what I did, and left the axle on the roof of the car and drove home, is quite annoying.
Thankfully, they are a Syntace X12 style (same thread pitch too). You can order a non lever design from Bromley Bike for about £20. They have the tapered head you need to make it work.
Edited to say this is for an Enduro, which may not be the same as the Stumpy! Should learn to read…Posted 3 years agosbd16vMember
ill second them being helpful, I called them and said I wanted the frame but I was not going to be around on payday as I was going to be at sea and they said it was not a problem if I paid £100 they would keep it for the 4 months I was away !
give them a call you might be surprised.Posted 3 years ago
Yeah they did the same for me – They kept the frame for me for a couple of months why I got the funds together. I secured the frame with a £100 deposit as it was the last one they had in stock.Anthony who I’m guessing is the owner seems very helpful.
I did email asking for advice as to which axle I need before I made this thread and they got back to me earlier and are sending me one free 🙂Posted 3 years ago
