Thanks for thoughts, all!

In reply : I'm not terribly large, but do use the bike in question for loaded touring and commuting. Hence the load. It is a 7 Speed freewheel, but it's an old (1987) aluminium frame, so moving to a freehub is not an option.

And now that you mention it - I DID have a bit of creaking that I assumed was the BB and that I figured I would take care of when I repacked said BB.

Appreciate all your help - Axle is replaced and now I can breath easier knowing that I don't have to replace the skewer as well!
