    running 15mm thru-axle on traverse wheelset

    cross-posted in the wheels forum..

    I bought the wheels off a 2012 Stumpy EVO hardtail. They are the regular Traverse wheelset. My understanding is that they have dt swiss 240 hub internals.

    I run a 15mm thru axle, which didn't fit the stock end caps. So I bought these:
    Universal Cycles -- DT Swiss 15mm Thru Axle Conversion Kits

    Well, that didn't work When I pulled off the existing endcaps, there was an axle sticking out. It measured 24mm in wide. The bearings block the end caps from being fully inserted.

    Wrong end cap or am I wrong about the hubs being DT Swiss?

    You need the Roval endcaps. You order those thru a specialized dealer. The rear hub works with DT end caps, but the front uses the Roval ones.

    Make sure you order the Traverse endcaps because a lot of the Control and Control trail front hubs only go to 15mm and there caps wont fit on the 20mm Traverse hub.
