Everywhere ive seen says 22 front and 27 rear but thats on the older model, pre 12'. Not sure if its different on mine but wanted to see if anyone with this year model bike knew for sure.

In a pinch (or every time you do the job if you're me), you can use a 7/8" on the front if you don't have a 22mm.

Someone said the same thing, and a 1" 1/16 socket on the rear? But thats why im buying the correct sockets, so i have them since i will use them often.

I keep one axle wrench in my shop and another in my backpack at all times. Couldn't live without it.

I like that. Reason for the sockets is so that i can torque them to spec using a torque wrench. But i do like that for on the go

Good point. I learned the approximate torque by tightening the axle nut with my wrench, then verifying with my torque wrench. I did this many, many, many times, and can now tighten with the axle wrench and get similar accuracy as with the torque wrench. Certainly a nice ability when needed on the trail. However, I'll still use the torque wrench to make sure on target.
