3w premade dynamo wheels? thru axle/QR convertible dynamo?

A few minutes of googling isn't showing me any wheels, just hubs by themselves. Am I just blind? Any suggestions?

Also are there any hubs that have disc brakes and are convertible from QR to thru axle?

Thanks y'all.

some SP 15mm TA disc hubs come with a QR adapter. I'm using one on my gravel bike. Not sure about other standards. I'm pretty sure they are supposed to be making a 12mm TA, but don't know about the adapter on that. I imagine they will eventually stop providing the QR adapter.

Not sure about pre made wheels like that. Lots of people will build you one. Longleaf is back in business I think, they carry SP.

The vast majority of dynohubs are bought by the wheel builder to build up their own wheel or to build up a wheel for a client, I would have been surprised if you said you saw lots of wheel choices available with dynohubs that were already built.

Check out the European bike stores -- SJS Cycles, starbike, rosebike, xxcycle, etc. At least one of those had a selection of prebuilt dyno wheels, at surprisingly (to me) low prices. Unfortunately, the rims on the wheels are going to cost more to ship than just the hub.

Intelligent Design Cycles of Taiwan sells their wheels on ebay and I think a few other places. I bought one of their front wheels, and it is flawless. It has a Sanyo QR hub and Sun rim, and it was only $95.

If nothing else, you could try your hand at building one. Front wheels are among the easiest to build.

Schmidt dynohubs are offered in a 12-mm through-axle version. Peter White Cycles stocks them, and Mr Peter White will build you up a wheel with one.

Any good shop should be able to build you up something. As adamrice said SON hubs are available in thru-axles and Peter White can build you a wheel. Also Shutter Precision and possibly Kasei has thru-axle dynamos. I believe Rolf Prima is also making prebuilt Dynamo wheels now (or will be soon) for adventure biking.
