The latest generation of the Fox 36 fork is plenty versatile and capable, in all ways but one: fast wheel removable. The creative dropout design that can accommodate both 15mm and 20mm axles requires a tool to install and remove—not so fun when you get a flat out on the trail.
The Flow Zone has a solution: a new QR axle designed specifically for 2015 Fox 36 forks. It affixes a pre-load lever to the drive side of the axle (still works with both 15mm and 20mm) and replaces the pinch bolts with two QR levers. After a 10 minute installation you can have the wheel in and out in seconds.
The Q36R was designed and tested by the folks at Flow Motion in Colorado and retails for $89. If you’re shopping for a new fork you can also order one straight from them with the QR installed.
The Flow Zone is also an expert service center for Maverick bikes and suspension, so if you want to get that old DUC32 running again, give them a call.
