|QR front wheel on for track racing?||Qubeley|

|I am building a track bike for racing(Bianchi Pista Concept 2003). I do have a budget, so I was wondering if I can use a road bike front wheel with quick release. With the money saved, I can afford a better rear wheel.
Anyone actually use a regular road front wheel for velodrome racing?

|I can't speak about everywhere, but at my hometown velodrome QRs are explicity not allowed...|

|Buy a solid axle from thirdhand/loosescrews from $5.00 and get a couple of stainless nuts and washers from your hardware store. Works great.|

|Control Tech sold QRS that used a hex-wrench to loosen the wheel. I've used these for a front wheel before.|

|MAYBE in a Kilo, where you're the only person on the track but probably not even then - they'll tell you it's a liability issue. The above posts offered solid advice.|

|Theres nothing wrong with using a regular front wheel. Just be aware the commisaires will make you tape the skewer up so it can't come open.
