almost any qr will have a similar sized rod and will fit in (don't forget the locktite). I've converted many a cooks or ringle seat qr in to wheel using cheap £5 qrs off ebay!

RetroBike weekly ride....chatting and not paying attention....packing up after a ride, already had a bunch of wheels in back of car so it wasn't obvious the front off my Pace was missing (it was leaning against my car), drove off, felt a bump......ran my newly built Ti Glide/Mavic X517 over :oops: :oops:

Miraculously this is the only damage!!
