could I take the nuts off my axle buy a 6" bolt from home depot and put that on?

I just bought a bolt thru axle instead of the QR.

Halo Hex Key Skewers. They make the bike a lot stiffer!!

I have a "Formula 36H" rear hub, as listed from the manufacturers website. It has a quick release skewer on the rear(135mm spacing), would i need to purchase a 10mm axle to make it a non QR thru-axle?

This link shows a hollow axle, that the skewer goes through. So I would be replacing that hollow axle with a longer solid axle right?

So if I have the right idea, which axle would i need to purchase from here?

I have a bolted through axle on my new NS. Its so damn hard to unscrew the nut sometimes, and if you don't screw it tight enough its not secure. Make sure you get good bolts to secure the axle or they round off and leave you screwed!

aw man! this an old thread,
the hub is question was a cannondale fire rear hub (actualy a formula with dale logo) that came stock on my chase but, its now so haggard that a few weeks ago on the way home from work the freewheel seized as i was peddeling snapping my chain!!!(the only time i've ever snapped a KMC X9) lucky i was seated at the time!!

now got an old Halo spin doc/freedom disc wheel off an old DH bike wich i know i can get a nutted axle for,but i gotta fit new bearings too cos they're haggerd

depends on the hub,but in all honesty i would keep the 10mm bolt through as qr is mega flexxy unless you go with the dt swiss rws system.

pretty sure hope are easy to change you just need the correct axle mount/holder for that hub.

yeah i would stick with 10mm bolt through or the rws if you have to go qr,but to be honest bolt troughs are no slower than qr.
