Looks good. But I won't be buying until Shimano stops undercutting the LBS. Plenty of quality alternatives to vote with my dollars.

That rearward axle path is for real! Typically, published graphs make the rearward axle path look significant, when it is really only 5mm. This rearward axle path is 40+mm! I wonder how that feels on trail.

I'm guessing the Maxle Stealth will be welcomed by many, but why couldn't SRAM have designed an expanding wedge or collet into it, improving the purchase the axle has on the lowers like the Boxxer axle?

I have Flow rims laced up to a rear (wide flange) single speed hub and a Hope pro 2. When landing a whip I cannot detect flex from the SS wheel with the wide flanges, on the Hope wheel with lesser width flanges, I can feel flex.

"The lateral stiffness imparted by the spokes goes up with the *square* of the bracing angles, while using more or heavier spokes only results in a linear increase in stiffness… and an increase in weight."

It is the most consistently pointed out "negative" point in Enduro reviews in bike media. However, in years of riding Enduros, I can say it is a non-issue. The cable might have a few marks from thrown rock strikes, but that is about it. I rode 2 Enduros for 8 years. Same cables that came on the bike the entire time. I viewed the cables as a down tube protector. They can collect sticky mud sometimes.That is about it.

Under the downtube, the cables are protected by the cranks and chainring. They never get caught on anything.

I currently do not ride an Enduro, I ride a fancy pants carbon frame with new school internal routing... and have to add a downtube protector for protection.
