    20mm Wheel up adapter?

    Anyone know of an adapter to put a 20mm axle on a standard wheel up? I've been searching but came up zero.

    I believe this is what you're looking for. I have the Yakima one but this is same thing.

    No, that's to put the bike on the tray. What I want to do is put the front wheel on one of these:

    Ohh, sorry I misunderstood. I don't think anyone has come up with a solution for carrying a thru axle wheel on the rack yet. I think as we see them becoming more of a standard that you will see more solutions. The biggest problem I have with the whole thru axle system is that if you put it on a fork mount rack (like I do) you can't lock the bike on the rack. You also have to use the axle to put it on the rack, which doesn't leave you an axle to put the wheel on anything......maybe if your wheel had a 9mm conversion kit that wasn't too much of a pain to put on you could use a standard wheel up and then take the conversion out when you got to the trail but that seems like a lot of work.

    I thought I heard of something sometime ago. The only problrm I see is that those are made for 100mm spacing and 20mm thru axles are 110mm wide, I know its only a 10mm difference, but that difference may lead to interface problems when mounting the wider width hub
