Long thru axle converter needed

Postby justinmg » 29 Jul 2020, 10:21pm

I have a Fuji 2.3 disc which uses 12mm thru axles. I need to convert to a QR skewer so I can mount a pannier rack as there are no frame mounts. The longest axle Converter I can find is 148mm, which is too short. I need 170-175mm approx.
any ideas???
Thanks

Can't use P clips because it's carbon....
If it has a round seatpost you could use a seatpost mounted rack.
Probably not the best bike for cargo carrying!
If you started out with a solid alu through axle you could drill and tap either end and bolt your rack to that. Seems wrong...
