Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Axle Question

Dumb question, because, well, I'm full of them, but I have a Deep V from IRO for my Raleigh whose spacing is too wide for my Fuji. Can I just get the axle replaced? Never dealt with this issue before.

if there are spacers then just take the spacers out. We had athread a while ago that suggested that all IRO hubs are 120mm, and that Tony just adds spacers to them to get the 130 and 135mm sizes, which is actually very good.

Ayup. My IRO hub was spaced to 126mm when I bought it. Got a new frame spaced at 120mm and easily removed the two 3mm spacers.
