    replacement rear axle for Formula hub

    I'm having a helluva time finding these online. Went to one of my LBS and the turn around was a week at the least and I was hoping to find/order/get something quicker. My other LBS only had the solid Wheels brand cromoly that doesn't have the internal spacers for the hubs, which is also the only one that Harris stocks. Anyone know of a source online for these?

    A week seems very good to me. What were you expecting less than a week? 2 days?

    I was hoping to find them online for a quicker turnaround, which may be wishful thinking. Wanted to avoid switching out my good wheelset onto my beater if I could.

    Found something on a list here http://www.airointernational.com/xca...s.php?pageid=4
    Maybe you can call them to be sure about what they might have.

    Thanks!

    How the crap did you find that? I thought I googled every possible combination that could yield something. Today just isn't my day.

    threading stripped out. didn't over crank or anything so I'm not sure exactly what went wrong, think it had something to do with the locknut. once I get a replacement I'm going to throw the axle onto a lathe and see if I can clean it up to have around as a spare and cut the locknut in half to inspect the threads.

    For future reference:
    Just got off the phone with Tony @ IRO. $19 for the rear axle + bearings + hardware (minus locknuts). Sending it out tomorrow morning via priority mail.
