What's up with so many different axle sizes?
I was just checking out different hubs on the web and have become somewhat confused.
I've seen 10mm QR, 10mm thru, 11mm thru, 12mm thru, 20mm thru, and even 24mm QR.
OK, the 20mm and 24mm I understand, but the 10, 11, 12 have got me stumped.
Are dropouts specific to a certain size? Can you put a 11mm in a 10mm dropout or vice versa?
Why isn't there some standard?
Please help me make sense of it all.
