Which axle do I have?
Normally the manufactures are mentioning the axle diameters on the axle. Like 12x1 or 12x1.5. The last number is the axle thread number (12x1.5 means 12 mm with 1.5 mm axle thread). The you need the T1710.
Non compatible axles
The following axles are not compatible:
- Cube Attain GTC Pro Disc X12 adapters. Diameter standard is 6.8, but Cube is 6.4. Please contact Tacx support for a solution
