Hey thanks I was thinking along that line because apparently they don't make a longer skewer bolt. Where you able to reuse the QR by drilling a hole in the rod?I had a similar issue with my RadRunner, and simply bought a (longer) length of threaded rod to replace it. The local Ace carried it. It was metric, perhaps M5 fine thread, I can't remember. Super simple fix, but I'm not certain what the Radrover uses.
Just got my Radrover 5 and wanted to try it on my bike rack which requires me to remove the front wheel to fit in my truck bed.
Well the QR skewer bolt is too short. The mount I have is for a 135 mm fat bike but I need a longer bolt. Any ideas? Thanks
I am under the assumption those won't work being they are much thinner than I am looking for. Like the skewer on my bike which is long enough would fit inside of the one I need.
Well since they don't seem to make a longer QR bolt and the threaded rod idea won't allow me to make it QR, I ordered these instead. With this setup I just use my skewer and insert through the tube. Hope it works.
Thanks, I appreciate it but we are talking two different things here.I hope it works for you! I am not certain why the threaded rod will not allow QR? I simply threaded the original QR mechanism directly onto the threaded rod, and my QR works great! I needed the extra length for my new Bolton front end, which was a tad wider than stock, because I had to mount the fender supports somewhere and the Bolton did not have a mounting spot, so I just put them on the axle!. Very simple job!
