I have a Rock Shox QR15 (15x100) up front that weighs 74 grams
I have a Shimano AX75 (12x142) down back that weighs 96 grams
So far I've seen offering from Tune, Parts of Passion and Massi but all don't have favorable reviews for reliability or user friendlyness.
There's also Carbon Ti and FRM making bolt up versions that require a 5mm allen key.

At this point I'm leaning towards FRM but just wanting to check if there are any other options out there.

That's right I was hoping for cheap weight savings there but it doesn't work.
The threaded end that goes into the fork is actually threaded into the axle as well. One of my loosened over time. I used Loctite 243 to fix that. There is a hex that is broached inside the threaded end section that goes into the fork. Just cleaned it with some Alcohol and then let it try, then applied some loctite and that was it.
There is also a Skyline version of the DC15 that is even lighter. I think it is 2X the price of the DC15.
Fronts are currently only in Fox standard. Actual weight is 54 grams.
Rear are currently only in DT standard. Actual weight is 42 grams.

Old thread but asks the same question. Anyone know how Trek's ABP system is working with other axles? 90g axle wasn't so funny for my bike.
