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.

Why are road thru axles 12mm up front and mtb 15mm?

…and spare a thought for anyone shopping gravel forks and wheels- both are common 🙁

Not that I think it is sufficient justification for 2 sizes, but I think the original thought was that MTBs typically have telescopic forks, which are inherently flexy, whereas road bikes typically have rigid forks, which are inherently stiff (plus weight savings, while important for both groups, are more key for road peeps). That, and perhaps the bike industry puppet masters didn’t want us to be able to easily interchange our 700c/29er wheels.

Are you allowed to put eMtb wheels in this.

To the extent that e-bike front wheels aren’t any different than nonmotorized bike front wheels, yes.

Could it be used to hang a through axle frame on the wall?

I doubt the axle is long enough to go through both dropouts.

Good question! Unfortunately the Narwheel isn’t designed to interface with forks- only wheels.

Surely you’re thinking of making a two wheel version, I’d order on sight…
