Will LBS carry axles for hubs?
I messed up the axle for my hub. I found it hard to screw back a locknut and forced it in and now it is stuck on the axle. Because of this, the spacers, bearing cones etc... on that side of the axle are stuck there too. I am able to remove because the other side parts can be removed fine.
Since this is an old nothing special kind of bike, It's really not worth buying a new wheel, nor will it be worth my time buying a new hub and putting in the spokes.
Getting to the point:
If I bring the Axle and it's parts to the LBS, might the repair shop have this or compatible item to sell? As well as spacers, bearing cones etc...?
