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)

Removing axles on track hubs?

Can the axle be removed from track hubs? I have basic Formula track hubs.

The goal here is a locking skewer, just curious if that's possible with this hub. I don't think it is, but I thought I'd check as it would be the most convenient locking option here.

track hubs are no different than road hubs. If you have the sealed bearing formulas though you'll need to work something out for the bearings to seat on. There have been threads about it.
