Quick release skewers and regular axles
edited December 2008
How interchangeable are they? Can you pull the skewer out and put a nice chunky axle and some nuts on instead? How about vice versa?
on some of the cheap hubs you can as its just a threaded bar but better hubs have an inner flange for the berrings to run on and these need to be a set width.
How about the other way around.
I have a single speed pub bike i'd like to hook up to my turbo trainer but it has a fixed axle, is it possible to swap a fixed axle for a hollow?

Rule #42 // A bike race shall never be preceded with a swim and/or followed by a run.
same thing applys, just make sure it is the same size and away you go
