Yes, just not cheap.

This page on Carbon-Ti shows all the crazy thru-axle combinations. Length, head interface and thread all varies.

I believe extralite and FRM also make a 142x12 bolt thru. But again, not cheap

That is very nice.

Could you help me figure out what size I would need for a Yeti SB95C?

Holy thread resurrection Batman!

Mt Zoom are doing a decent range of thru axles here, at a good price. Got a 142x12, 43g on my scales, nicely made, good deep head. Better than the Maxle it replaced!

Do thru axle bolts normally come supplied with wheelsets as QR's seem to be supplied with non TA wheels?

Cant seem to find much info online?
