Anybody figured out some way to get the 142+ rear wheels with the 15 mm through-axles into some kind of truing stand?

I've got one of those one-sided Ultimate stands, and the dropout in it is too small, maybe around 10 or 12 mm.

Hoping for a genius idea. Really don't want to buy a new truing stand!

He's got a goofy truing stand that only works with standard QRs. The answer is to get a Park Professional stand. There's a reason that's the only stand you see in every bike shop. It'll pay for itself if you build all your own wheels for the rest of your life, and some for friends on the side.

Now my question is, do those goofy 142+ wheels have an offset? The regular 142s don't but I get the impression that the rim sits closer to the non-drive side end cap on the 142+. Specialized and Giant made downhill frames with offset rear wheels and they were a pain in the ass to true and dish in a stand.
