This is my bike it came off so think they’re standard pikes:

are there any, stronger, alternatives to the Maxle. I have now gone through the second one in just over 12 months!
The front wheel hadn’t been off for a while and needed to strip the bike down. Went to release the wheel and it was a bit stuck. Instead of going hell for leather I just kept applying a bit more pressure, which in the end wasn’t very much and it sheered off the tiny bar in the middle. I’m sick of these pieces of crap. Had a 20mm on my old Pikes and that was bomb proof and ran strong for 7 years.
I was wondering if anyone knows a heavier, but stronger version of this poorly designed piece of junk? If it was a tenner for a new one then I wouldn’t care, but now the lbs is trying to remove the old one and I’m looking at 40 brick…. AGAIN!
End of the day I have kids and can’t spend every weekend greasing the whole bike and getting in some riding. It’s for consumers so why don’t we have something that doesn’t break when pull on with any bit of force? Or at least have a spanner release somewhere so I don’t have to force it?
