    Default Adaptors for boost T/A hubs

    Hi all,

    I'm looking for adaptors for boost MTB through axle hubs, to allow me to true and build wheels with my ancient, but functional Park truing stand. I see a lot of options on Amazon, but it appears that I will need a long QR to use them. (I do not have a long QR) Is there an economical, and functional solution to this problem?

    Thank you,

    Jeremy

    Mtnbiker4life on eBay. The abbey one is good too but it may end up too wide on the old stand

    I have a universal TA adaptor that works with every single TA hub made.......it's a piece of 3/8" steel rod about 10" long.

    Just stick it through the hole and drop it in the stand.

    I've built hundreds of wheels this way.

    Thank you for your wisdom, much appreciated.

    I got myself a 3/8" x 7" bolt and matching nut. Should do the trick I hope.

    Lots of old 150- and 157-spaced 2008 schoolhouse-drop free-ride bikes had huge proprietary steel axles. This is what I use.

    No nut !!!

    You don't bolt it down, it just sits there

    My POS home mechanic truing stand has an annoying one sided reference. If the hub isn't secured it is a bit difficult to work with.

    I tried using it with a longish 10x1 axle (unbolted, there weren't enough threads to do otherwise)I had in the parts stash, and it was not ideal. It was Ok for a quick truing job, but not good enough for me to want to build a wheel with.
