Got my New Ican AC059 Thru Axle version today

Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

I was looking at the Ribble website recently. Is their CR3 frame the same one?

There's sometimes a buggy.
How many drivers does a buggy have?

One.

So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

That is the standard QR axle AC059. I have one of those as well and it is a great bike which I have put thousands of miles on. The difference between the versions is just the axle type and the Thru axle does not have any fender mounts at the axles.

You can also find the AC059 on ebay.

hi any update on your axle situation.
I got a very similar miracle bikes thru axle frame which i've posted in the crossbike gallery thread but the QR axles it came with are 90g front and 95g rear.
Unfortunately they're non standard sizes so I'm struggling to find lighter replacements.
The front is 15mm and 141mm insertable with 23mm thread.
The rear is M12 142 and 174mm insertable with 16mm thread.
Neither the frame or fork has a tapped insert so they both use nuts.

The SRAM 142 Ibis hexle looks a good option for the rear but I cant find a suitable nut.

Mine has a shimano rear and I found a compatible front from shift up

I did not get the miracle because I did not want a screwed on rear dropout

Also my dropouts are threaded
