Re: Bent rear axle
I have found as a rule bicycle axles have two different thread pitches, 24 threads per inch & 26 threads per inch. If this was not confusing enough, most bikes have one pitch on the rear and another pitch on the front. I think it is 26 threads per inch on the rear & 24 on the front but it could be the other way around.
As far as axles, you might try Rini Enterprises in Beaver Falls PA. Hope this helps Walter F.
