    Sometimes Keirin frames use a narrower drop out to keep the axle from spinning. This is very common. You'll have to file the axle to make it fit. Apparently the person who sold you the frame failed to mention this.

    How big is the difference? When I got my Erba, the track ends were seemingly a little narrow and therefore pretty grabby. Five minutes spent between the two with a bastard file cleared everything up.

    I had to contact a guy on eBay who had a 110 DA axle custom made to respace my friend's hub for her 110/8 Gan Well. He sold me the axle for 20 bucks shipped and told me it was his last one and that it cost him wayyyyy more to have it altered, so I wish you luck with your files!
