    Thule 593 Wheel On and thru axle hubs

    Hi guys. I am looking at a wheel carrier for my Yakima Whispbar and was told the only thing that would work is the Thule 593 Wheel On. My question is this. I have thru axles on both my bikes and the wheel carrier uses a standard skewer.

    Do any of you have a solution or have any experience running the Thule 593 Wheel On with a thru axle type hub? Here is an image and a link to the product in question. Thanks in advance!

    Why wouldn't you just put the money towards a rack that can keep the wheel on the bike? I always thought the Wheel On was for back in the olden days when there were no good upright bike racks.

    I hear what you are saying, but I already had the bike carriers and did not want to buy new ones, plus, this may sound stupid, but I feel that fork mounts look better on my car...lol Next car I vow to get a hitch mount instead.

    rocky mounts make s a dummy 20mm skewer that has 9mm drop outs.
    if you have a 15 mm, I don't know of a good solution.
