126 mm to 135 mm

Hi again...

I'm just wondering if anybody knows where i can get an axle for a 126 mm shimano 105 hub. I have a commuting bike and I just remembered that I have a nice pair of shimano 105s tubular wheels that might fit perfect in that bike. The only problem is that they are 126 mm wide. Probably the 2nd generation of shimano 105s.

From 130 mms to 135 mms is not that big deal but from 126 to 135 mms the gap is too big and i was just thinking if there is an axle I could use to get the 135 mm i need. I have taken appart those 105s wheels ever so i have no idea what kind of axle is or if there is some longer axle in the market i could use. Anybody knows... where i can get one?

Thanks a lot.

Assuming a QR axle, any LBS should have a 10MM axle, 146MM long. You'd have to add some spacers.
