    End caps for Alex Rims CXD4's - Where to get them?

    I need end caps to convert a set of Alex Rims CXD4 from 12 mm thru axles to skewers and from 142 mm rear spacing to 135 mm.

    Does anybody know where these might be available? I have contacted Alex Rims twice through their web site but received no reply?

    Perhaps someone has a different email address there that I can try.

    Thank You

    Alex is the rim not the hub. What hub is it?
    Can you post a picture?

    Rims are not wheels, and what you really need is to convert the hub. What hub is it?

    I just spent some time looking, wow, not a lot out there. You probably already knew that.

    Not much to go off of, but try:
    DISTRIBUTORS | Alexrims

    Create a form email and reach out to them all, maybe one will reply with a lead, or will contact their supplier on your behalf. Or have a returned/defective wheel set with the same hub set that has some end caps floating around in a box.

    This ebay listing:
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/WHEELSET-70...QAAOSwFO5aVQx9

    And this website:
    Sears.com

    Reference the same wheel part #: WE0762

    Maybe a Cyclone Bicycle Supply part #?

    I thought Alex set up a USA office for A-Class:
    Alex Rims looks for aftermarket growth | Bicycle Retailer and Industry News

    And I thought they even had a satellite office in Murrieta, CA. Both searches hit a wall, both old news. Maybe both are gone by now.

    All the pics around on the net do a pretty good job at hiding any of the few potential hub "tells" that might specify a particular manufacturer's hand:

    https://www.bikerumor.com/2015/03/29...or-fat-gravel/

    There's a couple other links too, but I couldn't find a single pic that would allow for clear identification. There's a strong chance that Alex is getting a hub set specific for their program, so there wouldn't be any info/pics of their hub in any hub factory catalog. If I find anything new, I'll check back in.
