Stripped threads--- on rear axle
OK- this is a cheapo Nashbar fixed/fixed hub, but it is a great wheel--- 28 H rim with an unmilled Mavic. The wheel had been sliding a bit in the drop out, so I really cranked down on it, and as a fixed/fixed wheel, I had a habit of flipping the wheel with my mood. Apparently it had enough....
I assume the axle is quite standard-- like any Novatex, Joyteck, or Formula hub--- but is it? I'd rather just replace the axle than replace the entire hub, but how easy is it to find the right one? There are no LBSes around here that carry anything related to FG. Thoughts? Ideas?
