Why does my front wheel wobble in my thru-axle forks?

Q: Why does my front wheel wobble in my thru-axle forks?

A: The simple answer is because something isn't fitting right. First check you've got the axle tight in the forks. Next check the axle spacers or the axle bearings as they can sometimes work loose or wear out. Sometimes cranking up a threaded through-axle can make up the difference in width, but don't force it too far or you could strip a thread or squeeze the forks together too tight. If you can't tighten them up then contact your local shop for help.
