Hi everyone,

Just got back from an awesome week in Morzine. I had kitted my bike out with a new set of 06 Boxxers for the trip and they worked superbly! HOWEVER, on day 4 I went to check my brake pads and when putting the wheel back on I was merrily tightening up the through axle when the tensioner thread pulled straight from its holding cup.

I desperate search round morzine uncovered other people's tension bars had suffered a similar fate! Luckily i manaed to mock something up with a quick release scewer and a few washers, which did the trick.

Surely on a £500 pair of forks the tension bolts should be a little better thought out. Has anyone else had any similar problems with the 06 Boxxer axle?
