So I broke the rear axle on my Univega Supra Sport yesterday and am finding it to be less than straightforward to figure out the size and thread count I need to replace it.
The rear hub is a Sunshine #5345 with a Suntour "Perfect" 6sp Freewheel, laced to a 27" rim.
I removed the (solid) axle and it looks to measure 164mm long and about 9.5mm wide.
Granted im only using a regular ruler to measure this but when I looked at the Harris Cyclery website and their links to the Wheels Mfg site I have not found either any info on the Sunshine brand nor is there an axle that matches this length. All the Suntour info looks to point towards a 10mm x 174mm axle but this seems both too thick and too long for what im replacing. Im hoping to get over to the lbs with the cones hoping I can match something they have but I wanted to get some more info first. Im also debating switching over to QR so any opinions that could be had are appreciated.
