asked by: a guest where do i measure to confirm 150X15. roughy 145-147 inside dropouts of bluto fork
anwered by: canteau If you have a Bluto fork the dropouts will be spaced at 15x150mm. Rock Shox introduced the hub and thru-axle standard when they designed the Bluto. The dropouts spread slightly when the hub is inserted and in also measured from the inner part of the dropout where the hub contacts the fork.
This thru-axle will fit all Rock Shox Bluto fat bike forks.

My son did not understand how the thru-axle worked thinking that the lever that appears like a QR lever worked just like one. Instead it really just pulls a tapered cone into a split cylinder tightening it so that the axle cannot unthread itself. When the cone jammed as they sometimes do, instead of working on releasing the cone he simply tried to muscle the lever around in the cutout that allows one to thread the axle in and out. He quickly sheared the small Al ears that the lever fits into and was left not knowing how to remove the tire. After I removed the axle and tire we needed a new Maxle so I ordered from TreeFort. The new part worked perfectly without any problems at all. Everyone happy again.
