    Wheel Axle Thread Count and Diameters...

    Is there a difference between Italian, French, and English wheel axle sizes? Information pertaining to diameter and threads per inch would certainly be a big help.

    There is. I'd check Sutherlands.

    English: Probably all over the map.

    French: Normandy's and Maillards and such were like 9.5mm X 26

    Italian: Campy used 10 X 26

    Japan: Mostly 10 X 1

    There's alot of odd threading out there.

    Aside from Sutherlands you could always copy/paste the info from Sheldon Brown into your site.
