    Is there a quick release conversion for vintage campagnolo?
  1.  
    Campagnolo what?

    Campagnolo invented the quick release, so there's plenty of vintage Campy QR bits about.

    Is there a allen head bolt conversion?

    Take out the QR skewer. Put on a bolt with the right threads. That's the conversion.

    There's not enough room on the axle

    Yes, there is an Allen head bolt conversion for your Campy hub. Any Allen QR type skewers that are long enough will do. Being Campy has nothing to do with it. Asama makes them.

    Unless you want actually want a Campagnolo QR Skewer with a 5-mm bolt on it, then no, that does not exist. Sorry.

    Oh. Duh. Of course. You could swap the axle. That's not a big deal.

    There's an antitheft dingus you can get. Um, lessee...

    Here we go.

    Yep, that's what I was talking about. You can even get them with fancy triangle bolt heads to increase your anti-theftness.

    Josh, I think he is asking if Campy actually makes anti-theft type skewers. However, his wording is poor and I really am not sure if that is what he is asking.

    IMO, just change out your axles. Easily done.

    Then sorry, Campy does not make such a thing. You can get them, but it won't say Campy on it.

    Buy some titanium ones. It'll decrease your spinning weight by .00000000014 grams.

    Or ones filled with helium that actually have negative weight. lickedwicked would be able to help you out.

    Or just go to your LBS and buy what they have. They're all the same anyways.
