Does anyone know if it's possible to switch out a Kysrium equipe axle for a solid one with track nuts?
I'm thinking either solid axle- or get the mtb version (longer) and just use the nuts on the hollow axle.
'04 model if it makes a difference.

I don't know that wheel.
However generally, as long as the diameter and threads are the same, in order to go with the nuts and cones etc that you have, a solid axle can be used in place of either a front or rear axle.
http://www.loosescrews.com has a couple of solid axles. one is specified as able to replace a Shimano hollow front QR axle, so if you could exchange axles with a Shimano hub, you would probably be good with that.
