So I'm running the NS capital 24" frame from 2009.
It has basic BMX like specs, 1-1/8 steerer diameter , spanish bb, 110mm rear hub compatibility.
Anyway, my bike:
1) A colony wasp left side on an odyssey hazard lite 24"
2) Primo hollow bite cranks
3) Profile racing blackjack 25 t sprocket
4) Shadow interlock v1 chain
5) Odyssey twisted pc pedals
6) Federal pivotal seat with a random pivotal post
7) DMR straight fork with 15mm open dropout axle fit
8) Mutant bikes stem
9) DMR bars
10) Atomlab 20mm to 15mm front hub on an unknown rim.



Okay, now the important part, I MUST change my fork to a suspension fork, but I can't find something "rideable" with 1-1/8 straight tube steerer and 20mm/15mm thru axle.

Any help on this one?

Thanks for you help, but I encountered a new problem...
My hub (pimplite front hub), has 3 axle options; 20mm thru 110mm wide, 15mm thru 100mm wide and 9mm qr.

For my bad luck, my hub has the 20mm thru axle with some 15mm adapter, so I technically can't fit my wheel in any 100mm fork.
And yes, I looked up the official converters online and they're discontinued.

So I guess I need a new wheel and pray to find a straight 1.1\8 fork.

I'm not sure what you mean, that you can't fit a Pimplite front hub in a suspension fork made for a 20mm thru-axle.
I have two different Atomlab front wheels and they both fit in normal DJ suspension fork--Rock Shox Agyle, Marzocchi DJ1, Manitou Circus, Manitou Gold Label, etc.

These guys seem to be talking about what you're saying:

If you have a 20mm thru axle fork, and a 20mm thru axle hub, you're fine. They're made for each other!

It appears there is no such thing as a 20mm thru axle fork that is spaced at 100mm. They're all 110mm. (The "100mm" they're talking about would be the TRAVEL of the fork, not the spacing).

Oh wow, I feel dumb...
I'm just new to all these MTB sizes.
I used to ride BMX, so sizing wouldn't bother me much, 1.1/8 steerer , 100mm front hub spacing, 110mm rear. Only the bb and cranks would matter.

Anyway, I'm more than happy to know that, 20mm thru axles only come in 110mm spacing.

Btw, since you mentioned the Manitou Circus and the RockShox Argyle, I wanted to ask you about the steerer length.
I know about the circus and the amount of spacers I need on my Capital frame (I had this fork for a week , until it cracked on the axles because of rust), but by how it looks, the Argyle has an extremely long steerer (compared to my current DMR rigid fork and the Circus comp I had), so would it be a bother ?

People cut the steer tube to the appropriate length.
