2013 ENDURO EXPERT EVO rear thru axle comes loose

REAR HUB Specialized Hi Lo disc, 4x-sealed cartridge bearing, 12mm thru-axle, 32h

Hi, on the above spec bike my rear hub thru-axle has come loose and the wheel rear wheel has nearly fallen off twice since I have had the bike. I tighten the hell out of the thru-axle and it still keeps coming loose. Is there a trick to avoid this from happening. I have never had this happen on a bike before. Obviously a severe safety concern.

Hi, Tony!

I would recommend trying a little bit of Loctite on the screw-end of your thru-axle. Otherwise, you can bring it to your local Specialized dealer and see if they can look it over and see what can be done to help you out.

Happy riding!
