    Replacing hollow axle/skewers with solid track axle.

    Some recent hub/rim re-assignments have left me with a beauty of a Shimano High Flange front hub and I'd like to put a solid track axle in it, is there a standard size for these, and where do I get it, and the track nuts.

    Thanks!

    Take one of the lock nuts with you to your LBS. Tell them you want a solid axle that has a matching thread. The right ones are get-able but it might be a special order item.

    +1 take in a locknut (actually a cone might be better), cause there's a few different diameters and thread pitches floating around.
