I had someone ask me if my 10mm Atomlab Pimp rear hub would take a Saint axle, and I didn't know.

You guys know?

anyone know if you can run a quick release instead of a 10mm axle on a horizontal dropout frame? will it be sufficient to hold wheel and keep chain tight?
as have to take wheel of alot and fed up of 10mm bolts getting rounded and the time to take them on and off!

You could, but it's not proper at all. Seen more problems that way. You can always run some nice hardware on the axle too...

I don't really want to take my hub apart right now to see, but could you explain what I would do?

I switched my front hub from a qr to some random 10mm axle I found in my backyard and it works great...Snapped like 5 qr's.....All i need is my 20mm hub now for my argyle.

Hey does anyone know where i can find a skewer converter (asking here because i don't even know if this is what you'd call it) i just got a set of wheels which use a 10mm "thru" skewer in the rear. my dropouts can't fit it. my old skewer is too loose inside the hub so is there like a tube you can slide in to take care of the extra space? i'm not sure but i think my skewer is 8-9 mm qr.

Could be just thick paint as most modern drop outs are 10mm,measure the gap with a ruler.
