    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?
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    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.
