I recently bought a track bike. All looks well except I note that on the rear wheel, the axle protrudes beyond the track nuts by about 5mm on both sides (see photo). This is a brand new bike with Miche Pistard wheels. The bike spec web pages for London, Manchester and Glasgow tracks all say that the axles must not protrude beyond the track nuts. So is this going to be a problem when it comes to take the bike onto the track? Should I do something about this? I did ask the seller and they said it was normal (seller is a popular supplier of hire bikes to velodromes). Thanks.
