Need a way of securely storing thru axle wheels when they’re not attached to your bike? Meet the Narwheel. We got an early look at Lindarets’ wheel holding device before it was named, and before it was available. Now, the small accessory is shipping to vans and shops everywhere with an aluminum tusk on which to mount your wheels.
CNC Machined from 6061 aluminum, the Narwheel features a stepped design that is compatible with 12×100, 15×100, and 15x110mm Boost front hubs. Lindarets says that it will not work with 20×110 hubs since the shoulder isn’t big enough. Instead of the axle sticking straight out, it’s mounted at a slight angle to allow for narrower tires to overlap if using multiple Narwheels, but will still keep 27.5 x 3.0″ tires from hitting the mounting surface. Mounting the wheel is as simple as placing the hub on the axle, and threading on the handle/end cap.
The 3″ square base plate includes four holes for mounting to a surface of your choice with #10 or M5 screws – whether that’s inside of a cargo van, a trailer, or your shop wall. However, it’s not designed to be used outdoors.
Priced at $39.95, the Narwheel is available through Amazon or Lindarets directly.
