Ok... so does anyone make a decent quality 19mm and 22mm axle wrench in the same configuration as the oem wrench? I see Cruz Tools does not. Neither does MotionPro. I see lots of original wrenches on Ebay... but what the heck...

Just buy a 19mm socket and comfortable ratchet, then a 22mm box wrench. It's a great combo for the tires. The large 22mm box wrench gives you plenty of leverage to hold onto the nut while the ratchet/socket combo loosens the axle.

And if the axle nut is stubborn, just wire the ratchet to the fork and use your body weight to step down on the box wrench to break it loose. Worked great for me when trying to change Charlotte's front wheel by myself.

With a slight modification, the stock wrench will work just fine. What you don't get stock is leverage. A bracket for a tire iron changes that. Stock wrench is short and easy to pack and a set to tire irons can come in handy. Just tightened my rear axle with this setup tonight.
