Bigger bikes deserve bigger attachment points.
The Thule Thru-Axle Adapter allows you to mount larger front suspension forks on existing Thule and other fork-mounted (tray) bike carriers. The durable welded steel body supports your front forks.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I had to pick one of these up to work with my Yakima Forklift rack. It does the job and holds a 15mm fork very securely. It's very easy to set up and use, but would be nice to see a cheaper option or one that allows you to lock your bike down. Paired with the Yakima rack, I can lock this adapter to the rack but can't lock the fork to the adapter without throwing a cable lock around the whole mess.
Bottom line - this works great and is completely necessary, but is possibly the least sexy piece of gear I've spent $$ on in my life.

It works like its suppose to, but $40 for something this simple ? I needed 4 so it adds up quick! I guess I'm forced into it if I have all 15mm axles on my mtb's.....
Simple, solid, good quality. Just what you'd expect from the Swedes
Works as advertised.
I got the 15mm version of this to attach a Rocky Mountain Altitude 50 to my buddy's Rocky Mounts TieRod Bike Mount. It works just like I thought it would. My friend has a Rocky Mounts thru-axle adapter and it was a lot more expensive than this one. However, unlike this adapter, it allows you to still lock the bike to the rack. If that were possible with this one, it would have 4 or 5 stars.
