I have a rocky mountain reaper 1 and am upgrading the forks to a marzocchi bomber 44 tst2 with 15mm thru axle. does anybody know if theres any companies that make the conversion to 15mm thru axle for a wheel tech hub that came on the bike? I have searched all over the web with no luck.

I've never heard of companies that make aftermarket adaptors for other peoples hubs. (Actually Project 321 may have done some.) You're best off contacting the company that makes the hub. If it's a cheep unbranded hub, then perhaps contact Rocky Mountain. If all else fails, you could contact your local machinist and have him make you a set of cones to fit.

Hope makes most of their hubs convertible between various sizes.
