    Front Wheel Question

    I have a marzocchi dirt jumper fork with an azonic outlaw front wheel with thru-axle on my Blk Mrkt Mob. I want to swap this for a rigid fork and bolt-on wheel. Problem is, I can't find a suitable wheel anywhere. Anyone have a good resource for a 26" bolt-on built wheel that can be used for dirt jumping?

    why not just use a quick release? You can always swap the axle from a hub that uses a quick release with a longer solid axle.

    You can use the quick release adapters with a bolt-on skewer or a DT RWS skewer. It's not as secure as a true bolt-on. But you've already got the parts.

    All Shimano hubs can be converted to bolt-on. You can run a BMX hub. Atomlab makes a bolt-on hub. So does NS. I'm sure there are tons of others.

    I think his "thru-axle" is maybe a 20mm hub. If that's the case, just get a 20mm rigid fork..

    Are you telling me I can I use my existing thru-axle on some rigid forks?

    I'm telling you your terminology is confusing.
    If you do indeed have a 20mm hub, YES you can get a 20mm rigid fork. DMR and Identiti make them, as I'm sure others do as well.
