    Older Yakima BOA compatible with disc brakes?

    does anyone know if the older (late 90's) Yakima boa fork mount bike mount skewers are compatible with a standard disc brake fork? I'm selling 2 of these and have only tried my 15mm thru axle which I know doesn't work w/o the adapter. Thanks!

    it should work fine, since it's usually the tray behind the head piece that interferes with the calipers.
    on the round bars, you can always tilt the head piece downward so if there was some interference you could alleviate it, but in my experience, the BOA works fine with disc brakes.
    the biggest problem people run into with the BOA is that it requires a 32"-50" bar spread.
