Convert Solid Axle/Bolt-On Wheel To Quick Release Axle

Posted by on in Hubs, Wheels & Tires


I show how to convert a solid axle to a quick release axle on a bolt on bike wheel. I do the conversion on a rear wheel in the video, but the process is about the same for the front. I ordered the quick release axle from eBay and it came with the cones and nuts. You may had to add or subtract some spacers to get the spacing correct. I also installed new bearings. Check your local bike shop for any parts you might need.
BTW, the freewheel is a Suntour Powerflo and the teeth are supposed to look like that.
