My questions are:
1. Are the Wheels Manufacturing axles a good replacement? I'd like to have some replacements on hand just in case, and they're available from QBC.
b. The front axles are listed as 110mm; 100mm spacing + 5mm each dropout, but the rear axles are longer. Are rear dropouts wider than fronts? Would they be 5.5mm? And therefore, 126mm spacing would have a 137mm axle (126+5.5+5.5)?
III. Do Record and Nuovo Tipo rear hubs both use 10mm 26tpi axles?
four. Can an axle be cut or ground down to the proper length without weakening it?
