Most Nicolai frames are delivered with thru axles as standard. Thru axles are more stable and stiffer than quick-release axles. Rear hubs for this standard have hollow axles with about 18 to 20 mm outside diameter and 12 mm inside diameter. The hollow axle is bolted to the dropouts of the frame with the help of the quick-release axle. The rear wheel hub thus has a supporting function. The coarse thread of the Nicolai quick-release axles can also be easily screwed on mud trails, in contrast to normal finer threads. The tool on the trail for this is a 6 mm hexagon socket wrench. If the screw is overtightened or corroded, the axle can also be loosened and fixed with a 17 mm open-end or ring spanner. Nicolai thru axles are fully compatible with the Rear-Maxle Standard from RockShox.
