    That actually doesn't sound too bad coming from the self empowered creator of the universe........The_Aleman!

    I don't think you have too worry at any speeds on this axle as I taken my bike up over 70 mph on them and haven't had an issue. The axle is oversized and runs with 4 cartridge bearings.....

    I run 24" rims so the spoke length won't mean anything if you're using 26" wheels. One of the nice things is the hubs are drilled for 12G spokes......that's another plus!

    The back rim you see on my bike IS a heavy duty clincher alloy rim and the Cyclops CST tire is more than a fully servicycle tire in any sense of the word :D

    Do you plan on using a grubee HD axle hub or what?

    Scott why the 24" rims over the 26?I have been kicking around my next
    build.Been thinking the Fat tire deal, but keep coming back to a build some
    what like yours.

    I may be asking you a lot of help if I choose to go that rout.

    It brings the bike down an inch closer to the ground and you get a bit quicker acceleration. My bike handles better with the 24" on the race track and that's all that really matters. If you're not gonna race your next build I suppose it might be the look you are going for and might not matter otherwise.

    The 24" does have some advantages but you are also limited to the narrower selection of tires and tubes available for them.....something to seriously consider.
