I think the vast number of people who have snapped 3/8th rear bolts would probably disagree with you. 14mm ones sure, 10mm no chance

This, I've bent 3/8" female bolts in the front before, but I have yet to bend a 14mm male axle in the rear, and the rear takes more abuse.

14mm female though would be stronger than 14mm male though. And obviously 3/8" female is stronger than 3/8" male.

I'd take 3/8" female over 14mm any day. Yes, the 3/8" bolts are slightly easier to bend and break than 14mm male axles, but it's just the bolt. When the 14mm male axle bends or breaks, it can fuck up the rest of the hub. I'd take having to get a few extra bolts over having to get a whole new hub.

Just get a set of G-Sport 3/8" bolts and you're good.

Yep, I've definitely had tons of trouble with 3/8 female in the rear, bending slightly and snapped a whole entire non-drive side once.. Always go for 14mm male, if you have the the money, then 14mm female. Best decision you can ever make with running pegs.

I snapped 3 bolts in 6months and never bent a male 14mm axle, I'm not a heavy guy either 10mm in the back is just too weak
