What are these Quick-release (?) axle bolts?

Postby Djmissmills » 26 Mar 2020, 10:28am

Hi guys.

Newbie post!

My neighbour gifted me her old hybrid pinnacle stratus 3 but I need to change the tubes. The bolts look like security bolts, she has no idea. Does anyone know?

IIRC with this type of QR then there is meant to be a small tommy bar which screws into the (upper) hole in the QR cam, and it then works as a normal QR. It may be possible to substitute something else for this; if not then just cut the skewers off and replace them with new skewers that you can use more easily.

cheers

Looks a similar idea to this?

If it is a clone / copy of yours, you might even get lucky with the lever fitting.....expensive gamble at £3.90 though!

Simply screw in a long bolt?
