    BOB Nutz and bolt on hubs
    Thinking about getting a BOB Trailer but according the BOB web site they do not make Nutz for SS bolt on hubs. I have to admit, I've never used a BOB trailer and I'm not 100% sure how the nuts work. Can I modify the Nutz to work with bolt on hubs?

    Which hub do you have?

    Bob nutz are designed to thread onto solid axles.

    Most bolt on hub can also take a QR skewer, you may be able to go that route.

    I have a BOB's nutsack skewer chillin' at the bottom of my laundry basket. I think I cut it down to work with a 130mm axle, but I'm fairly sure you are a Portland mother****er, and if you want it, I'll do me best to get it to you...

    I searched over there and didn't find anything. I didn't ask though.

    I have a White Industries ENO eccentric hub. I'm pretty sure a skewer wont work.

    Yep, I'm a Portland Mother ****er. Thanks for the offer but, I don't think a skewer will work with my hub.
