Or that=) However, wheel rebuilding is usually not the average cyclist's first go to. Although be careful because some 5 speeds give a different (wider) chainline which might be a problem in a folding bike. So at this point if the OP can give a bit more details, it would be helpful. I remember recently seeing a Sprinter Elite drumbrake 5 speed hub with a broken axle on eBay...
