I converted a standard truckbed axle-mount to 20mm with Manitou elastomers, hardware store washers, and a rear skewer. It worked on the back of my motorcycle wonderfully. I think I still have it in a box somewhere, I'll take a pic if I find it... I'm sure the concept could be adapted to any fork mount.


Of course, on anything but a moto I would have used an upright.

Ummmm..does it matter? Pike....perhaps I used the wrong name, but I need a thingy that acts like a 20mm thru axle hub that then has other things that acts like the dropouts of a QR fork.

I got no clue what you're talking about but I like the idea...hate buying stuff when I can make it myself (sans welding in this case). No TIG welder currently...

Not exactly "local", but I saw one at Mountain High Cyclery in Loveland the other day.

This has been taking up space in my big box o' bike stuff. Not exactly local, but I can get it in the mail on Monday. If this is what you are looking for send me a PM and we can work out the details.

Yup...love it so far...about 15 rides or so...
what brian said: rocky mounts in boulder should have them; probably the easiest.
