Thru Axle 150mm x 15mm needed
#1
   

asked this question over on /r/fatbike and i'll ask here as well:

i bought a used fat bike, a mongoose argus comp, that was upgraded with a rockshox bluto 100mm suspension fork. I have a full squish XC bike, and with no real need for the supsension on the fatbike, i purchased the stock mongoose alloy rigid fork ($50). I am planning on swapping it with the bluto, then selling the bluto to pay for some cold weather gear for the upcoming wisco winter as the whole justification for buying a fatbike in the first place was to be able to ride in the winter and get off the fucking trainer

now my question is: Mongoose is shipping me the fork without a thru-axle. The only specifications on the mongoose website for the fork are: 150mm x 15mm thru axle. How do I go about finding a thru axle to fit this fork? Mongoose support has been less than helpful, not being able to provide me more detailed specifications (thread pitch, spacing, etc). Any advice/suggestions?

cheers
