Yakima T-Axle Fork Adapter 24mm - 2007 BCS
The Yakima 24mm T-Axle Fork Adapter lets you load bikes with Maverick through-axle forks on your friend's fork-mounted bike rack. Ease your shuttle pains by using this adapter to load your big bike on racks that aren't designed to carry a big bike.

The thru axle adapter clamps in the fork mount of an existing bike rack just as a standard fork would. Usually I will install the adapter with the bike on the ground and the adapter's tabs pointed down. Using this technique allows you to load the bike on the roof as you would any bike with a standard 9mm QR fork.
If your rack locks, that's great, you'll be able to lock your $59 adapter to your car. But the bike comes off with the same ease as removing your front wheel. If you want to use this adapter and lock your bike to the car you may want to consider a cable.
