Just got a set of Reynolds wheels, went to put them on and discovered the sad reality of purchasing wheels from one of the many companies that use hubs that don't have torque caps for the dropouts in a Rockshox fork.

I put the wheel on there anyway, since the axle is beefy and they're both boost, but come on... anyone find caps for Reynolds or similar fitting hubs?

or any other solution to gain the stiffness benefit of the torque caps fitting into the dropouts?

thanks for any info.

The max benefit of torque caps comes with hubs that have larger internal axles between them (not the through axle). If the hub isn't build specifically for them, then there's little if any benefit of running torque caps. Running non-torque cap hubs in torque caps forks is perfectly fine. Some add little stick on crescents inside the fork dropouts to make it easier to locate the wheel when putting it in.

Looks like you found the thread where this is discussed.
