    Sure it is. It's also possible to stuff your seat tube with hot dogs.

    If they have aluminum or steel inserts of some sort. Otherwise the carbon will be crushed when you tighten down your wheel!

    Do you have any pics of the dropouts without a wheel installed? Also, that rear axle looks a bit short...no?

    I'll take more pics of it later today.
    Looks short because the dropouts are thick, and I have that tensioner on there as well.

    True. I think it also causes the axle to be (too?) short because of your aforementioned dropouts and tensioner.
