  • I just screwed two M10 x 1 nuts on the ends by hand to cover the exposed axle. The axle has to be long enough for alu or carbon frames with thick dropouts. Steel bikes, especially with plate dropouts, will leave a lot of spare axle protruding. Cut it down and the wheel may not be transferable to another bike.

    Not my problem.

    After putting the best part of a tub of filler into the massive gouge an overly long axle left in the surface of Glasgow a couple weeks ago I’m taking a less tolerant view on this subject.

    If you can fit 2 nuts on it’s too long. Dbad and trim it.

    Repairing that damage meant the cancellation of 2 hours of public sessions and a national squad training session.
