possibly up to 127mm for cook RSRs & CBRs depending on frame.

I had a 'Actiontec' ti axle for my cooks and could feel the axle flex when really pedaling hard. a little bit un-nerving

If you're using compact chainrings (less chance of fouling the chainstays) you can get away with a 122mm (got that on my seven), but as everyone says 127mm is the best option.

I'm using a 122mm on my Kona Hei Hei. Good clearance and chainline is right on.
