Subject: [CR] Keeping my wingnuts


My bike has Weinmann 700c hubs and rims. They are mounted up with fore and aft wingnuts. I like the wingnuts.

My hubs are dead and need to be replaced. I pretty much need a complete wheelset.

Can I get a contemporary hubs and have an axle that will allow me to bolt them up with my old wingnuts?

Can a Phil, or any modern hallow quick-release type hub get an axle that will allow wingnuts?
