wheel axle width questions
I have a few questions:
Does the amount of gears have an affect on the rear axle width?
Would you need to measure the span between the dropouts to get the correct rear wheel?
Is it damaging to the frame if you spread it a little to fit wider wheels or sqeeze it together when you tighten thinner wheels? Better yet, how much flex is acceptable to fit wheels on the front and back?
Are fork axle-spans a standard width for 700c wheels?
Thanks for the help.
