    Qestion about rear axel spacing...

    I think I know the answer to this but just want to be 100% sure. Is the standard read axle spacing 135 x 10mm? Does that mean the drop out diameter is 10mm and the total axle spacing, not counting the part that is actually in the drop out , is 135mm?

    Yes the 10x135 means a 10mm axle slot in frame whether it be a 10mm axle sticking part way through the dropout, or 10mm bolts running in to the axle from the outside in a bolt-on rear hub.

    The 135mm is the face to face inside dimension of the dropouts on the frame. The nut to nut dimension of the hub must be that as well. No pulling the rear end apart to punch in a 142mm hub or something goofier.
