I made one from a Wheel nut for a car and welded it to a hex head bolt of the same thread.....Cost about $3 to make
THIS.

Works excellent; I remove my front wheel at least once a year!

Yes the 22 is part of the axle and needs to be loosened. You could also get a long 22mm (7/8) lug nut from a truck and use a wrench on that to loosen it up.

I got mine off ebay for 10ish bucks shipped. Remember on the first gens the nut & axle are one piece. Loosen the nut and the whole axle slides out.
