You need DT Swiss Part No. HWAXXX00S6600S
Judging by the lack of results searching, I don't like my chances of getting them haha. Thanks

Try something like this? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MTB-Tools-Mountain-Bike-20mm-Thru-Axle-to-15mm-Thru-Axle-Adapter-for-110mm-Fork-/252082256474

Manitou Circus suggests DJ bike so no I'm assuming no front brake alignment issues. Might need to go for a torque cap compatible RS fork to make sure you have dropout clearance over the 20mm end caps.
Yep, Dartmoor Two6Player, and no front brake. That was an option I was looking at, but fork & travel choices on the RS side seem to make this more difficult. Pikes don't come in 100mm travel, nor do Revelations, and i'm not keen on other options as too flimsy with exception of a 35 gold/silver which i can't find for a reasonable price. This is looking at all 27.5 options with a 26" wheel too which isn't ideal. At this point I think I might just give up and do what I probably should do anyway.. and stick with the Pike 409 until it breaks and/or I get sick of changing the oil due to the dead stanchions.

Looking like this might actually be the case. Annoying. Been looking for a Manitou Circus but damned if I can find one, next option was a secondhand Fox 34 or something but ICBF changing the hub.

Cheers guys.
I'd like to get one of those too. Seem to always be sold out. Also I think I saw the 2021 will be 15mm like the rest of them.

Pikes don't come in 100mm travel
Say what now?


But they aren't cheap.

Wanting to convert 20x110mm DT350 hub to 15x110mm (or 15x100).. what do I need to make this happen? A search for appropriate end caps has been surprisingly fruitless.
I'm assuming its a 350 OS hub.

15x100 is Type 23 on here https://www.bike-components.de/en/DT-Swiss/Front-Conversion-Kit-for-240s-340-350-370-440-p53643/

To convert to 15x110 will need Boostinator df20 here https://www.bike-components.de/en/Wolf-Tooth-Components/Boostinator-Hub-Adapter-p64023/

Quick question:
I've been out of the MTB scene for 6 or 9 years, but recently getting back into it.
I've still got my old DH rigs, but keen to get something AM, preferably not hard tail, and money is tight! All the Covid idiots posting their old bikes ABOVE rrp is not helping, all I seem to be able to find is $100 K-Mart spec crap or $2500+ old bikes.

What's my best option to land a sub $1K all mountain rig?

Sell your vintage dh bikes while the market is hot. If your avatar is anything to go by, you may be on a carbon laden gold mine. Then buy a sick modern rig.

Not selling the Lahar. Plan to hang onto that and do a few races on it again once I get a bit of fitness and confidence back. Don't care that it's 26", I've never known any different.
From what I've seen my old Spec Bighit and Craftworks S1 are worth SFA. But yeah, you're probably right, flog em now while I have half a chance of moving them on. I also have an RM250 and SV650S that need to go as well come to think of it, may be able to scrounge together enough to get something half, err 'sick' yet.

@Nambra is the DT swiss hub parts compatibility guru i think
You're too kind... although @Oddjob is probably your man.

In my limited understanding, the 20mm 350 hubs aren't convertible with genuine DT Swiss parts. Although, there appear to be two different 20mm hub shells, one 'oversize' and a smaller hub shell that looks more like a standard 15mm. Either way, you're probably looking at a non-OEM solution such as a 20mm OD to 15mm ID sleeve of the right length (100mm or 110mm) or maybe OEM 15mm end caps on the non oversize hub with some 20mm to 15mm reducers to slip inside the bearings (or replace the bearings with 15mm ID versions). There's also these things that must slide into the existing 20mm end cap as well as the bearing to reduce from 20mm to 15mm.

The 20mm to 15mm sleeve is probably the easiest and most robust option, but the wider OD of the 20mm end caps might not work with a 15mm fork - unless it is torque cap compatible. 15mm end caps and bearing ID reducers might be better suited to non torque cap 15mm forks.

Are those two parts compatible with the 350 OS hub - I thought they were 240s OS specific?
