    Hi, has anyone got an Orbea road bike with disc brakes? I just a bit concern that my new Orbea M20-D disc front thru axle is not flush with the fork. See pic 20170915_163211.jpg
    I rang the bike shop where I brought I from and they say is how Orbea does it now. Not convince, so asking anyone out there has the same issue.

    Thanks

    I'm no expert so take my answer with a pinch of salt and wait for someone more knowledgeable to come along - @Yellow Saddle is good for this sort of thing.

    The TA's I have seen fit flush to the outside edge of the thread when done up fully.

    That looks wrong. How many threads are engaged?

    I think roughly 4 threads are engaged and still about 4 to go. I have also email Orbea and waiting for an answer.
