    I converted a standard truckbed axle-mount to 20mm with Manitou elastomers, hardware store washers, and a rear skewer. It worked on the back of my motorcycle wonderfully. I think I still have it in a box somewhere, I'll take a pic if I find it... I'm sure the concept could be adapted to any fork mount.


    Of course, on anything but a moto I would have used an upright.

    Ummmm..does it matter? Pike....perhaps I used the wrong name, but I need a thingy that acts like a 20mm thru axle hub that then has other things that acts like the dropouts of a QR fork.

    I got no clue what you're talking about but I like the idea...hate buying stuff when I can make it myself (sans welding in this case). No TIG welder currently...

    I'd try rockymounts in Boulder.
    Take the long cut, we'll get there eventually.

    This has been taking up space in my big box o' bike stuff. Not exactly local, but I can get it in the mail on Monday. If this is what you are looking for send me a PM and we can work out the details.

    what brian said: rocky mounts in boulder should have them; probably the easiest.
