Question about Axle Specs please!

I see an axle listed as follows:

"Pyramid 9 X 1 Qr Front Axle 100x108mm"

I understand this is a 9 mm diameter axle with a 1 mm thread that is 108 mm in length.

What does the 100 refer to?

I think 100mm is the locknut to locknut measurement. that would be important for spoke lenght calculation

What locknuts.

The op has has just the *axle* as a replacement. That number is superfluous.

The theoretical locknuts, or the faces of whatever bearing support system he uses. 100mm is the nominal width of the built hub to match a fork with 100mm dropout width (standard front fork). The built hub will be 100mm wide at the mounting face and 4mm of axle would potrude at each end for the fork to sit on.

Who cares?

The 100mm is superfluous. His QR axle is 108mm long, with no particurlary outstanding features such as shoulders. Hell you could specify any hub < 100mm in width and have more than enough left over to actually fit in the fork dropout.

You're right, who cares.

the OP asked a question and got the answer he wanted hours ago, so why are you still arguing?
