    Where can I buy a front Halo hex key skewer?

    They are sold as a set everywhere, as far as I see. Is there an online bike shop or something that sells the skewers separately? My rear single speed hub uses bolt on nuts...

    What hub are you using? Reason I ask is the axle diameter of bolt on is larger than what the Halo parts used with a QR hub would call for. I have the Halo set you are inquiring about they came in a set for $11.99 retail at a bike shop and I'd guess online has them for much cheaper.

    The front hub is an old Shimano Exage or something, which has a quick release skewer. The rear bolt-on hub with nuts will stay the way it is. I'm just looking to get bolt-on skewers for front hubs.
