So they really didnt change it in the newest Neo model? Thats really retarded on their part.. you are right, the thread inside of dropout is getting damaged. All your weight is going thru the contact between the sleeve and thread...
Luckily I havent had a problem with it yet. Also the same sleeve on drive side is sitting on the outside of the frame's dropout which is no longer designed to by pressed by qiuck realease and it can be damaging derrailer hanger or chipping paint on some frames. And lastly its very inconvenient to use the quikc release adapter since you have to fully srew/unsrew the nut every time you are putting or taking a bike out of Neo. The most expensive trainer on the market with the shittest thru axle support system.
I think with Elite's trainers you can just use your own thru axle. Genious and so easy..
I have no confirmation, but they are supposedly including reverse threaded 1, 1.5 and 1.75mm adapters for the DS in the Neo 2. Better, but still inconvenient, especially if you want to use your Neo for a pre-race warmup or something and you have to not only unscrew the end-nut, but now also another threaded component too.
