Hi all!

I have a Motobecane BorisX9 Bluto that I am looking to upgrade the wheel set on.

I’m picking up a set of Bontrager Jackalope wheels. Will these fit the Boris X9?

Looks like the Boris X9 is 150 front and back is 170 which look to be the same with the Jackalope wheels.

But the issue seems to be the back wheel. The Jackalope rear wheel is a Thru-Axle

And my Boris X9 does not have a Thru-axle

So finding End caps seems to be the issue...

Can anyone help!?

Have you perhaps reached out to Trek to see if they have end caps available. Not sure what type of hubs they use but it could be possible that hubs are not convertible.
