Nothing gives me more pleasure than when a product idea comes to us from a mechanic and we get to collaborate to bring it to fruition. Our friend Joel builds custom wheels for Handspun. He'd been using our 20mm thru-axle adapters but was ticked-off that they'd slip out of the hub when he took the wheel out of the truing stand. So he had a groove cut and o-ring mounted so it would stick in there.

Nice. We liked the idea so much we decided to co-opt the o-rings into our updated versions.

Our 9/15/20mm adapter works for thru-axle front wheels:

In-stock and available for purchase through our distributor and big momma, QBP. Thanks for the foresight, Joel!
