I have XT quick release hubs (M756) and would like to try to stiffen them up a little. Is there any conversion to a bolt on type or something that would help the rigidity, especially the front hub? Maybe a new axle for the hub? Anyone have any experience with doing this? Mainly, what parts would I need and where could I get them? I know I should have gone with 20mm :madman:

Yep, making it a bolt on hub will stiffen things up quite a bit, especially on the front, and only really slow down flat fixes.

Thanks for the links. just what I was thinking about. Does anyone know if they make the nuts that would work with an allen key, rather then a wrench. I know Chris King makes some for their hubs, but it's really a bolt not a nut and works totally different. It would be nice not to have to carry a wrench.

My buddy has DT's RWS system front quick release. Some people have reported breaking them, though. His is fine after about 6 months or so. I have the 9mm through bolt version and it works great, too.
