    Campy Hub Conversion

    Has anyone used the EAI track axle kit for older Campy SR/NR hubs? I've got a really nice set of wheels just sitting at home. Bens has the kit for about $55

    what exactly do you mean by "conversion?" generally when i hear that i think of converting from gears to track/fixed.

    those are replacement axles. if you have a set of campy sr/nr track hubs with a bent axle or pitted cones, then that will get you back on the road.

    if you have a set of campy road wheels, those axles aren't going to do **** for you.

    They'll convert your quick-release wheels into bolt-on at least.

    I have a set that I converted--- using different axles that I borrowed from another hub set. Everything works great--- but no way would I spend that much on just the axle kit. I use them on the old, high flange Record hubs with the grease port. Of course, it is still a bit of a cludge, since the rear has no threading for a lockring. So you are spending quite a bit to make a suicide hub (assuming you are not running SS).
