Front wheel 15mm to 12mm adaptor

Anyone know where I can get a 100mm through axle adaptor to convert from 15mm to 12mm so I can use a set of wheels on two different bikes

Mountain bikes use
QR's, 20mm ThruAxle or 15mm Thruaxle on the front
or QR or 12mm Thru Axle on the rear?
most wheels come with Adapters etc
Need Year/make/mosel to help though

Wheels are Mavic Crossmax 2012, rear wheel is ok but I need the front wheel to fit a 12mm from 15mm through axle. There seems to be every other combination of adaptor on the marker but nothing 15 to 12mm

That's because it doesn't exist, not even in France.

20mm, 15mm, 9mm, I believe that's every axle type for a front wheel.

Which fork do you have?

RockShox Reba RL 29, Solo air spring QR, 100mm travel. I have already bought 15mm to QR which is 9mm diameter, the through axle I have is 12mm

we need pics
all u need
is a Standard QR, to use with a 15mm axle,
if you hve converted to a QR cap ends
Pics would be helpful, as i have said, they only use 20/15/QR for Front forks of mtn bikes
unless u are trying to use a mtn bike wheelset on a rd bike

I'm thinking the qr may have a sleeve over it to make it 12mm, I'm not home till Saturday so can't check till then thanks for the help Ill let you know how I go when I get home.
