interesting, didnt know they had a 29 version. I've put one for 700 on my wifes road bike, good rack, solid. The qr is a bit of a pain in the rear to fiddle with , but no biggie.

the deal will be the length of the hardware. On my Troll that has low down factory eyelets under the seat area like your bike (the troll is essentially a mtb shape) the hardware on my rack is I believe 340mm long, and that works, so maybe find out the length of them on this axiom, a bit of forward slant isnt the end of the world, but it would depend on how much slant...

looks like you will be experimenting, and deciding how much money you want to throw at this project, while at the same time figuring how much weight will actually be on the rear rack...

have fun
