Cleaning bikes is something we all have to do and we love products that make this job easier. The Robert Axle Project sent over a new product called the Drive Thru that allows you to remove your wheel for deeper cleaning. Details inside from Robert Axle Project.
Being able to remove the rear wheel allows you to deep clean much easier. This new Drive Thru from The Robert Axle Project is similar to the Bikehand Dummy we reviewed in general function, but with more improvements and a bit more perfection.
We have checked out the Robert Axle Project Lightening Bolt-On axle (pictured above) and below is their new Drive Thru.
Though far from glamorous, routine drivetrain cleaning is essential for component longevity, especially during winter. The Robert Axle Project’s Drive Thru dummy hub makes the job easy, replacing your rear wheel to allow uninhibited access to the drivetrain and rear triangle for easy cleaning.
Based on a design by legendary framebuilder Chris McGovern, the Drive Thru retains the ability to shift, making cleaning inside your rear triangle or degreasing you derailleur pulleys especially convenient. The Drive Thru is at home everywhere from the pits at a ‘cross race to your workbench at home. The knurled axle stud head makes installation and removal easy, even with wet or greasy hands. The pulley wheel is captured by an o-ring on the axle, but can be easily removed to fit flat in a toolbox.
Available in 3 thread pitches to fit almost any bike.
Machined to the most precise standards in the industry.
No tools required, simple one-hand installation.
Weight: 62 grams.
