Revolution Heritage

Bike manufacturers often cut costs on certain components to keep prices competitive. Case in point? This Revolution Heritage. The front wheel came equipped with a quick release, but the rear was a bolt through. 99% of the time this may be fine, but what happens if you get a puncture in the rear tyre and have to remove the wheel? A quick release is far easier to deal with. So, this owner asked me to replace the bolt through system with a quick release. A new axle, with the correct spacing retained for the cups and cones of the hub now mean it’s as easy to remove the rear wheel as the front.
