    I'd like to replace some bolt-on axles with some QR ones. Anyone know where to get them online in Australia?

    Thanks

    Are you talking about online Aus shops? If so, I don't think our online shops have expanded enough yet to include axles. A bit of Googling should quickly bring up several OS online shops.

    Here's one -- scroll down for a compatibilty chart.

    Axles are usually one of those things that are easy and (still) cheap enough to buy at your local shop. You've just gotta make sure the thread pitch and diameter of your cones and lock-nuts match the new axle

    Dave,

    I have some here. It would be easier if you dropped round with the bike, the frame needs to be compatible as well.

    Email for contact details.
