Same as if I had a 14mm axle? Just keep it tight and it's not a problem.

Yeah that would work fine. You could get the adapters for it, but you don't really need them, I don't use them.

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.

cause they seem to think a grip that you have to do stuff to to feel good is better than one that feels like sex out of the package?
