A thru axle is one you have to take out of your front wheel to get the wheel off.( also on the rear of some newer FS bikes). Most people still have quick release(qr) where the axle stays in the wheel, and you can still remove the wheel from the bike. I had the same issue with my brake hitting and ended up buying new bike mounts.
I have a Yakima High Roller and a Yakima Sprocket Rocket for sale if your interested. The high roller works without taking the front wheel off. The sprocket rocket solves the problem of the brake hitting the crossbar or mount.
