    Solid axle disc hub?

    Does anyone know of one? I have gone through my catalogs at work and looked on the net but I haven't seen one.

    Does that exist?

    I don't think that they come stock with solid axles. I would buy some inexpensive XT or so disc hubs or wheels and then take it to your LBS for some axles that will fit it. I think it is fairly common since disc wheels with quick releases has been said to be quite dangerous because the stopping power is stressing the QR as well as the disc.
    I had to re-learn how to walk once, but never needed to re-learn how to ride a bike. Cyclist for life.
