    135mm hub fits 150!?!?!?!?!

    i've been working on my M1 this morning for my B-Day and had to put my rear wheel off my dj bike thats been laying around since i put 24's on it. but when i tried clamping it down it fit!!!! perfectly. i'm dumbfounded(probably spelled that wrong). is this phenomen explainable? i'm hella confused.

    You prob. just tightened the axle down and the stays flexed in to make you think it fits, but in reality, it doesn't...
    I could be way off base here too, but that's the only situation I can think of that you give you the idea that 135mm can suddenly become 150mm. But who knows, maybing I'm missing something.
