    "QR" style skewer with Track Nuts

    Has anyone seen a company that makes "QR" style skewers with Track nuts instead of QR's?

    I would rather not swap out the axle on my fixie/track bike.

    Hi attached are what I use on my commuter (9 speed). Are they what you're after? They only cost about $7 US and I think they were made by "TRANZ -X" A single Allen Bolt is used to hold them on. They came in a number of colours and these ones were for mountain bikes but I just had it cut to accommodate. Maybe you can check out if they make a shorter set?

    Dude

    It costs them money to ship stuff. $7 for UPS/FedEx ground is about as good as it gets.
