I have the Phil Wood hub pictured below. It will be used for an EBB disc brake bike sometime in the future.

I want to use a quick release for this set-up, but when I remove the bolts from the hub, there is nothing to hold the hub into the frame except the quick release and that would not be acceptable.

Are there different axle ends available for my hub or do I need to use the bolts with it?

Help me!

Yep, I believe new axle ends will do the trick. You should contact brent AT philwood DOT com for details.

Can do...

Looks to me like that is a high flange track fixed free hub. It will work fine as long as you are doing 120, 126, or 130 frame. The chainline (42mm) will be too narrow for 135mm in most cases...
You will need a new set of QR caps to do the conversion. Let me know what spacing the frame is and I'll get you set up. We can trade as that hub looks new.

Shoot me an email.

All he needs is to contact me for a new set of caps.
