hmmm I don't know if I called it correctly, I was talking about the kind of axle that is used eg. in Vp-Free, non qr, you know what I mean?

I am running Azonic Outlaw wheels with a 12mm x 135mm rear hub. Initially I was using the Azonic 12mm to 10mm bolt on axle. However, with the shallow AS-X dropouts I had problems with the rear wheel coming off. I switched to the Atomlab 12mm to 10mm hex keyed axle and things are way better. Rear end is stiffer, tightening the axle doesn't tear up the drop outs, and I don't have to worry about the rear wheel falling off.

I will snap some pics tomorrow. Below is what the axle looks like. Well worth the money!

This is a bolt on axel...not a QR

It looks very similar to what Nagaredama posted above.
