Hi
Brother just bought a systemsix which he tells me is 12mm axles front and rear

i see some wheels are available 15mm front axle

Does this mean they wont fit or is it just a case of using an adapter axle or similar?

Many hubs with 15mm bores can be converted to 12mm either with an axle replacement, replacement endcaps or both.
