    Converting crossmax wheels

    I have a set of crossmax I would like to convert to solid axel bolt on.(terminology??)

    Does anyone know if it is possible. I saw a set-up made by Surly, but it said it only works on shimano hubs. Thanks for your help. BK

    You can buy spacers to use a single gear, but i dont' think they make bolt adapters for crossmax's. You could sell the crossmax and buy a real single speed rear wheel

    Control Tech used to make QR skewers that were not QR, but bolt on, Delta makes a set, here is the link to a LBS's site with a pic. Crossmax, at least mine, there is no way you can replace the axle without making a new one, and there are simpler solutions than that.

    Gravity, not just a good idea, it's a law.
    The only one consistently and constantly applied, no exceptions.

    Hey Brady, You could get the surly chain tugs they have an adapter that allows the use of a QR. That should keep the axle from slipping.
