    no matter how hard i crank down on my nuts, they keep slipping. i am pretty sure i have damaged the track ends. i think theres a rut in it. when i tighten the chain, the axle sits just behind this rut and i tighten as much as i can, but once i stand on the pedal, it slips right back into the rut.

    3/8 " 14mm's are the really thick BMX axels
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    thanks, i was pretty sure, just wanted the confirmation. i realise now it would have painfully evident had i just grabbed a ruler (0.55" compared to 0.375"). if there aren't any objections, i think i'll get them. my only hope is they aren't too large for the trackends (discussed in the other recent thread about chain tensioners).

    you actually probably have 10mm axles, which are about 0.5mm bigger than 3/8"
