    Same as it ever was

    The Lefty "standard" hasn't changed as far as I know. I actually run Woodman hubs, which don't list "only fit certain Lefty's" - they used to sell their bolts as an upgrade for CDale, but I don't see them listed now.

    You know, you could get a pin spanner and take off the left hand threaded cap that retains the bolt - so you could look at it closely and try threading it in by hand directly on the axle. That would at least let you see what's going on - or did you already do that?

    Yep, no different standard as I know of. Should be fine.
