I currently have hubs that have QR axels and I am worried about security so i want to change them to bolt-ons. How do i find the correct length and thread pitch i need for the solid axle i will be replacing the hollow QR one with?
I was also thinking that it might be easier to just get QR skewers that use a hex wrench to get off. The problem is the hub has a spacing of 126 since it is a 7-speed. Will newer skewers today built to fit 135mm spacing work? Is it as simple as just sawing off a few mm off the end of the skewer and the problem is solved? If that is the case, i would much rather do that than replace the whole axle.
