    xt hub solid axle size ?

    i just bought an new surly 1x1.My lbs converted the rear xt hub to a 10mm x 174 mm axle.
    im using a tugnut on one side and track type nuts(with attached serrated washers).
    the nuts are only catching 3/4 of the threads.some pepole seem to think its fine.
    i would like the nuts completely on the axle.
    ive been told to try a 9.5mm x 187mm length axle.
    has anybody done this?

    thanks

    Not much joy, huh? Mean Todd at webcyclery.com hooked me up with a 187mm solid axle that works great on my 1x1. As for the 9.5 vs. 10, I assume that's diameter or something. Change that and your nuts won't work anymore. Chicks don't dig that at all.
    When the going gets weird its bedtime.

    If the 10mm x 174 anxle worked but was just oo short - you still need a 10mm axle but longer - so if you could find a 10mm x 187mm axle you'd probably be in business.... and if you have to go with the 9.5 axle you are going to have more than nut problems- the bearing cones that thread on the axle will be the wrong size also...

    Hope that helps
