i have a totally stock 2011 spec. pitch pro. With the bike upside down, putting the rear wheel back on, I noticed on the rear hub, the part that sits in the dropouts only extends about halfway into the dropout.
So, say the dropout is 1/4" wide... the axle extends an 1/8" into the dropout.
Its the same on both sides, ill take a pic if it necessary but im hoping someone knows what im talking about.
It's held on with a quick release rod that if i crank on it seems good but yesterday i went riding and hopped off some mound of dirt maybe 8 inches in the air and the rear wheel got out of the dropout. I got it back in and got the quick release extra tight and it was fine.
It just seems like a very small amount of contact, those style dropouts never seem that strong to begin with. Is this normal?
