    Convert Mavic Module E 700c with Maillard Normandy Hub from QR to Bolt-on skewer?

    Hi, wondering if it's possible to convert Mavic Module E 700c rims with Maillard Normandy Hub from standard QR to either standard bolts or security skewers. I livein NYC and use 2 locks already (Kryptonite U Mini & Kuat bottle/cable lock). The U-lock secures the frame and the Problem is that cable lock is only long enough for one wheel and seatpost (Brooks) so would prefer to at least convert one of the wheels, if not both, to bolt-on skewers.

    Normandy / Atom hubs were available with either solid (nutted) or hollow (QR) axles, so the conversion is definitely possible. Finding the correct axle may not be so easy.

    The front should be easy to convert to bolt-on skewers (if what you're thinking is like the ones I have on my fixed gear) as it and modern fronts are 100mm. The rear on the bike I did already had 'em on the hub I used, so I have no idea if the rear needs to be OLD specific.

    Wouldn't it be both cheaper and simpler to buy a longer cable lock? Or just another one for the front wheel?

    The one I prefer to use is a Kuat bottle lock which is nice for quick stops since it sits in a bottle cage and it doesn't come in a longer version. Would be slightly more painful to have to carry 2 cable locks + a u-lock.

    Gotta agree with the others, switching to security skewers or bolts won't help you very much in NY. I'd be looking into a different or supplemental lock.

    Taking the wheel off and laying alongside the frame is what we always did in the old days. It's one benefit of having a quick-release skewer.

    Someone did steal the Campy skewer from my neighbor's bike. Of course you can easily take the skewers with you but it's a bit more trouble.
