Can I swap my 20mm non-boost front axle on my onyx hub for a 15x110 boost axle?

I emailed onyx but figured I would axe the hive

No. Anything boost won't convert to non-boost.
20 x 110mm non-boost
to
15 x 110mm boost

I figure I'd need an axle plus a rotor spacer to make it work. Even then I might need an axle spacer as well. I may have another idea that doesn't involve electrical tape

Oh, I misunderstood.

They do make a boost conversion axle. Their design re-dishes the wheel so you don't need a rotor spacer. I forget the part number. I've had way better luck calling them than emailing. Also, I think the CL and 6 bolt hubs use different axles.

thanks, I'll try reaching out by phone. I'd rather space my rotor than re-dish my wheel, but I'd rather re-dish my wheel than rebuild it.
