i want to buy this rear wheel but does this make sense?

here is the wheel in question, http://www.amazon.com/Dimension-Coas...722445&sr=1-45

the item description says it comes with quick release and then it also says it is bolt on, so what is it? does it really make sense to have quick release on a coaster brake hub since the brake arm must be bolted down anyways. and i would really prefer a non QR wheel. and if by chance it does come with QR wheel would it be difficult to make it non QR? any links to ebay parts i can buy?

email or call and triple check but the pic looks like a nutted wheel to me



I don't think I ever heard of QR coaster brake hub.

No mystery about it people. I constantly "use the copy-to" function in my retail store front to save time adding new items. Sometimes you forget to remove the obvious from the master-item description use for the new and different item.

...nothing to see here...move along.

An obvious mistake as noted about the QR feature and skewer. The picture shows an obvious solid axle to be used with axle nuts.
