Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Quick Release to Bolt-on

I'm not a huge fan of quick release wheels, and was wondering if there's any way to change them to bolt on? I seem to remember reading it somewhere before, but can't remember, or find it again.

can't easily change to a nutted axle but you can use bolt-skewers.

get a solid axle and rebuild the hub. not any harder than just repacking the bearings if you already can do that.
