My new bike has solid axles front and rear. Not a big deal, except that I have a Nashbar trailer that uses a through axle skewer to attach to the bike. The trailer uses ball-detent pins to fasten ball & socket joints to each side of the axle.
Are there replacement QR axles that could just be swapped into the existing hubs?
A local machinist has guesstimated that he would charge between $50 - $100 to make attachments that would thread onto the solid axle.
