He has quick release through axles.

I bought a Rayleigh Tamland a few years back and it had the same weird hub with super small ball bearings on the drive side. The drive side cones had the smallest contact area I have ever seen. had nothing but trouble from that POS, so when it started popping spokes after just a few months of use I replaced it with a different hub. I would strongly suggest you do the same, you can get a new hub laced onto your existing rim.

BTW, what is 15 mm? the lock nut holding the hub together or the diameter of the through axle itself?
