Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I have a wheelset with Dimension hubs that you could space out to infinity.

any hub in which you install a long enough axle.

get whatever hub you want and replace the axle if necessary.

well, not the ENO because the entire axle is internal to the hub. But then again the ENO will fit 130.

Phil Wood has a replaceable axle that costs like 60 bucks.

Also Van Dessel hubs come stock at 130 mm

i didnt. I presented AN option over the several specific hubs mentioned. Generally, if you can find the same 2r and pitch, it aint rocket science. [edit] - and yes, I wasnt thinking Phil at the time...

This isn't as simple as you might initially think. Do you have a general source for 130mm shouldered axles that the Formulas take?

How about the Miches?

It may seem simple at first, but it really isn't. Especially given a blanket statement that conveys the sense that it is "easy" to do.

sooo... for instance, how easy would it be to replace a dura 7600 axle? or can that already be spaced to 130 as some guy stated above?

There is no way you can safely space a DA to 130. There barely enough for 120.

certainly didnt mean to convey that... I sorta had in the back of my mind anyone willing to do so would first make sure a compatible axle was available. By 'replace the axle if necessary', I certainly meant 'replace with an appropriate axle;, not 'replace with any old axle.'

sorry to mislead anyone.
