DT Swiss RWS 15 Thru Axle (15x100 Front)
« on: May 01, 2015, 08:59:29 AM »
I ended up with an extra axle and thought I'd post it for sale here on Chinertown first to see if anyone wants it. 

Condition: Like new.
Price: $28 includes USPS shipping to the buyer's address in the US.

Do you know if that thread is compatible with the Fox 15mm axles? I have no idea the thread spec on them but could certainly find out, pretty sure my thread gauge goes up that high.

I checked it on my Fox Evolution fork and the thread did not match.  It works fine on my Rockshox fork though.  Interesting that neither Fox nor Rockshox can agree on the axle thread on their forks.

I'm sure they both agree that they're using the proper 15mm thru-axle thread standard, though. ;)

Thanks for checking!

Bump.  Maybe I will throw this on eBay if nobody here wants it.

What is the thread?  Do you know if this will work on a standard China Rigid fork?  Will it use the China axle nut?


I just bought a DT Swiss E-Thru rear, did not come with a nut, but Jensen is supposed to ship another with a nut....  I hope.

It's a front axle, not designed to take the place of a rear E-through axle.  It worked fine with my Rockshox Reba fork.

I get that, sorry, was relating experience purchasing a rear axle at the same time.

Questions are, what is the thread and length?  I have Carbon Rigid fork, using china supplied axle currently.  So I would need to find a compatible nut to work with it.

The overall length of the shaft is 5 5/8" (or about 143mm).  I can't say what the exact spec is of the thread, it worked fine on my Rockshox Reba fork.  Specs on the package says "RWS 10 ALU THRU BOLT 100MM / 15MM."
