    Where to buy push button quick release axles?

    I've only found a few scattered places on the web that carries them. I know a wheelchair axle can be used, but prices and where to buy are up and down. The wheels I'm using have a standard 1/2" bore.

    Where do you guys buy yours?

    This is for a trailer...if there was any confusion.

    What are your trying to do? I have never really heard of this for a bike, but I don't know everthing.

    are you a talking axles for a trailer?

    or somthing like wheels on a jogging stroller (I had a jogging stroller that had wheels that you could take off, they had an hub and then a rod that you put into the stroller frame)

    '83 Torpado Super Strada ... cafe commuter

    Electra cruiser (wife's bike)

    looking for: De Rosa 58cm ELOS frame and fork internal cable routing

    I'm talking about what most of the childrens and cargo trailers come with. Little button on the outside of the axle releases the wheel from the trailer.

    Nuh uh.

    Well...I know you can buy replacement wheels from Chariot, but I'm sure they ain't cheap, if that's what you're looking for.

    make you own recievers
    ti wheelchair axles are the best imo for quick release and wheelchair hubs usually have a recess for the head too

    so try to get a set from someone stepping up to a set of spinnergys or get a set of spinnergys!

    I made this trailer with a quick release system for the hell of it if you didnt see my other postings already
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKCEqDOdXs4



    but rather this axle system for my trailers
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDdLr...hannel&list=UL
    way cheaper more secure
    4 allen bolts to pop axle assembly for shipping trailer or long term storage


    and you can modify a quik release from a front skewer too

    also look at my other trailers on you tube for ideas
    cheers

    Quickie Wheelchair hubs?, maybe Phil Wood.. wonder if Skyway has something.
    they make fiber reinforced nylon wheels for wheelchairs..

    There are the ball detent pins , maybe those will serve in a wheel
    with just the 2 bearings in it .. as they too have a button-release, handle.. .

    you need the length of the receiving part, dimension, to be just the right thickness/depth.

    so far undisclosed.. the seller mentioned above will supply information from their end.
