    24" wheel conversion to quick release skewers?

    I just bought my daughter a Hotrock and would prefer quick release skewers rather than the bolt on that it came with. Where can I get the parts to change it over and is it difficult? Do I need special tools?

    Simply need to replace the the solid axles with hollow QR axles and skewers. This will require cone wrenches at a minimum (you may or may not need to remove the freewheel).

    You may want to run the bike by your LBS and have them get you the correct axle sizes, or you could have them convert the hubs for you.

    Thanks. Since I don't have cone wrenches I'll probably just take it to the bike shop then.
