Default Re: Introducing myself and my dual suspension BMX build!

Oh, I see what you are saying now 66sub. The wheel and axle that i'm using came off of another dual suspension 20 bike. The axel is already as short as it can be. I only need about 1/4" of stretch between the rear dropouts. I didn't stretch the dropouts, I stretched the trailing arm/rear chainstays. I also made sure the drop outs where parallel after I stretched. If I had to go much farther than I did I probably would have went with an internal shifting hub or some other way. But most of them have the wide 135mm axle spacing and I've read not many of them can handle the power of our motors.
