Been a long crappy day. Got home, see the fork for my new bike is here and... I bought the wrong fucking forks. The forks use a 15x110 axle. The Easton wheels on my "new" bike are 20x110.
I can return the fork if I pay shipping, but even still I can't find anything for a 20mm axle that isn't a serious DH fork.
I got the fork for $450. 2017 fox 34 factory for 27.5 wheels. 150mm travel. Killer price, I think I could sell them for a profit. Is it worth the effort though? Has anyone used adaptors to run 15 axle on 20 wheels? Should I just send them back?
Btw bike is a banshee rune. 26" wheels. 160mm travel stock.

A lot of wheels come with 15mm or 20mm spacers in front. It would be much less of a hassle to modify the wheels than send the fork back. Which wheelset? There are probably spacers out there for 15mm.

Ah that sucks, the front you can manage though since you only need to worry about the brake disc alignment. You could fashion an extra 10mm spacer to go on one side if you absolutely can't find anything. Kinda janky, but something like this https://www.ebay.com/itm/MTB-Tools-Adapter-Set-For-15mm-x-100mm-Front-Hub-To-15mm-x-110mm-Boost-Fork-/252191498198

I'd like to avoid that, spent a pretty penny to have a nice bike. Just seems wrong to keep fiddling with this to make it work. Of course it's looking like making it "right" is gonna be expensive.
Thanks for the help though!

My Havocs came with 15 x 110 adapters, as well as the 20 x 110. I'm sure you should be able to get them.

And, if the forks you got Are 'Boost', well just get a disc spacer.

You sure we're talking about the same wheels? Their website only shows 15x100 and 20x110
