This is correct info. Any one advertising a 9x1 as a rear axle is wrong.

Hate to nitpick, but be careful about generalizations.

A number of Taiwan made hubs used a 9.5mm QR rear axle in the past. They might have gone to 10mm by now, but I don't know. Also not all 10mm axles have the same thread. Most are 10x1, but for example, Campagnolo used 10x26 for decades.

As far as the OP is concerned, larger is better, but is isn't a matter of choice. The hub manufacturers specs the axle and replacements must match.

true but these days pretty much every Taiwan rear hub is 10x1.

OK, but reptilezs qualified his generalization by specifying qr (i.e. hollow) axles.

Note to Asi: the next time anyone in the US sees a "Ukrania" bike here it will be the first time.
