    15mm thru axle with Burley Bee HELP

    I have a 2017 DB Overdrive Comp 27.5, the axle in the rear is 15mm. The Burley Bee has a 12mm quick connect adapter. How do I make this work?

    I'm sure your rear axle is 12mm and not 15mm. 15mm is common for the front axle and non existent for the rear due to limits on bearing sizes for your rear hub/ freehub.

    Get Burley's 12mm thru axle. You'll need to figure out the thread pitch that your bike uses. Burley has a fit guide on the product page. https://burley.com/product/thru-axle/

    I use a Robert Axle Project axle on my bikes for a Burley kids trailer. Awesome axles! Looks like Burley ripped of their design and had it made in China, heh.
