    Bontrager Jackalope 135/142mm and Salsa Makwa fork (142mm)

    Hello

    I have some issues with fitting my Bontrager Jackalope in my Makwa fork, I know that my frontwheel is suppose to be interchangable between 135 and 142.
    I've also seen pictures of ppl using this combo together.
    The parts my Trek dealer said I should use made my Thru-axle come out at around 136mm-137mm or so. so 5-6mm short of the 142 target.

    Anyone know what end caps I am suppose to use on the wheel to actually get it up to 142*15mm ?

    The rear wheel which is 170/77 comes out at 177*12 perfectly with the end cap swap.
    Where is the snow?

    You should have the shop that sold you the end caps solve this. They are the Trek dealer, they have both the parts and the knowledge on-hand.

    If it was only that easy, latest message I've gotten is that there is no way to get to the desired width with end caps.
    But I've seen forum posts of ppl using the wheels and running them at 142mm without relacing them to a new hub.
    Relacing them is my second option, but seeing as I've yet to build even one wheel I don't want to start with an offset fatbike wheel ^^

    That is why I am asking the allknowing Mtbr.com forums
