    Easton Haven front wheel, 20mm to 15mm adapter.

    Im looking to get a batch of axles made up to convert Easton's 20mm haven front wheel to fit forks with a 15mm axle since Easton don't make the conversion.

    I've just received the sample from the manufacture and running it on my wheel. A few changes will be made for the production ones which includes being polished, tighter tolerance's on certain sections, no grove next the threads, will have the holes to adjust the bearing pre-load like the original axle.

    Price will be 30 plus postage(from UK, will post around the world)
    Please post here if your interested or email me at fraser AT face-parts.co.uk

    Here is a few pics of the sample one;

    That'd be great - put me down for one please.

    I'm assuming it's not rocket science to change these - haven't had the hubs apart on these wheels yet: new for a project that morphed...

    So - looks like this is an adapter:

    ?just slides into the 20mm - bit like a shim?

    Had a look on the tube:
    Seems this's a straight replacement, but I can't find the axle coded as per Easton's Ben Clemens (12F) listed...

    The link a few post back to BikeBling seems to work. Or you can call Ben at Easton Cycling Customer Service.

    Contacted Bikebling - the above link goes to an adapter, which converts 9mm to15mm, they can't say whether it'll convert 20mm:
    Has anyone used this adapter?

    You maybe right that the link is for a 9mm to 15mm conversion because I looked at the Easton website and they only had a 9mm to 15mm conversion and 15mm to 9mm conversion.

    However, I spoke with the Easton rep at Sea Otter and asked him about a 20mm to 15mm conversion because I was thinking about doing that. He told me specifically that they have a 20mm to 15mm conversion and that I could find it retailers.

    Yeah, I agree all the evidence suggests it does exist, but I can't find it even with the part number supplied by Ben Clemmens & no answers forthcoming from Easton!
    I might ring them direct...

    I've got the adapter listed above and it's the right one. I got it direct from Easton for $20.

    That's excellent!
    How did you get it, because it's not listed?

    I called them directly... I think I called (800) 217 9434. It was either that one or the one noted above and spoke with a very helpful woman who's name escapes me at the moment. She looked it up and confirmed that the part number was correct, then took my order right there and I had it in about 3 days.

    I was sweating for 2 weeks waiting on my wheels because the availability of a 15mm adapter drove my decision to go with the 20mm hub specifically so I could switch the wheels between both of my bikes.

    I'm giving Easton the benefit of the doubt that it's just a very new part and they haven't had a chance to update their marketing and technical collateral yet. None of the retailers I spoke with are aware of the part's existence either.

    Funny thing is that the part looks virtually identical to the one pictured above. Coincidence?

    I ordered the conversion axle direct from Easton as well by calling their 1-877-835-6629 number. $25.00 shipped. Part number 2033179, as listed above by another poster.

    Yep - I got it directly off Easton as well, just make sure it's 13F not 12F

    Now I need the tool to release the preload nut...any ideas?

    I use these to adjust mine. It may not be ideal but it works and is what I already had on hand.

    Oops - going mad: it's the 12F as listed by Ben Clemens you want - just had a look at the packet again:

    The Park Tool SPA1 or SPA2 pin spanner will work. I believe it's the red one but double check the size. They make an adjustable version as well.
