Bike now suspended by nothing but the wheels!
Sounds trivial, until you realize there is no axle made that's remotely wide enough to give 8" (200mm) of clearance between the dropouts. It simply does not exist. Neither does a 3/8" threaded rod with 26 TPI. Who's the @sshat that came up with the 26 TPI idea? I'd like to have a word with him. 24 TPI can be had anywhere but not 26. What an ordeal I had to go through because of that.
I've now, Crossed the Rubicon. LMAO
