Can you make any bike wheel quick release?
What you want to do is turn your wheel into a quick-release wheel. In order to do this, you need to remove that solid, bolt-on axle and the parts on it, and replace them with a quick-release compatible axle and parts (called a quick-release axle set).
Can I convert quick release to thru axle?
If it’s a front hub and your fork uses a QR, you can buy a new thru-axle hub and an adapter that lets you use a thru-axle hub in a QR fork. About $15 for the adapter. This will give a fractionally better bit of firmness, but primarily, if you change your fork down the road, you can get one with thru-axle.
