    Dear all',

    So what are you looking for? Thru-axle? Bolt up? Dont be vague.

    Look at hadley, dice, shimano the list goes on. All companies make them pretty much. What kind of riding are you doing?

    I am actually building up a MTB fixed gear, soo I need something with solid axle??
    I already have cogs that matchs to discbrake BCD and just need to look for hubs without the quick realese and use solidaxle/nuts.

    Sorry I didnt clarify much...

    Cheers,
    Dubbo.

    Why would you need a solid axle for the front hub? Any front hub will do, and you can use hex key skewers if you don't want a QR.

    Because I need to respace the hubs from 100mm to 120mm as a rear hubs...Its better that way cause I can achieve prefect chain-line.

    It would be much easier and cheaper to just swap out the hollow axle for a solid one. Are you trying to save money with this project or just tinker around?

    Save some money ... swapping axle, is it hard to find a 10mm rear solid axle tho? I really have no idea about MTB since I been riding fixed for 3 years plus I have no axle problem as yet *touch wood*.

    I guess I shall just find a Shimano front wheel and f@4k around with it.

    a 10mm solid axle shouldn't be hard to find at all, although with all the inexpensive and decent quality SS and fixed hubs on the market I question if you'll really save any money on this project.......

    Oh this project is not really about saving load of money...its more like I can use a 6 shooters cog and low gear ratio. =) thanks for the help tho.

    Out of curiosity, what frame are you basing this on? I've never heard of a 120mm spaced MTB, only old road bikes and track bikes.
