    Hi All,

    Tried searching a bit around to no avail.

    So I have this redonkulous ride...a fully Steel HiCycle...aka the Metal Mustang! :D

    Keep bending the rear axle...i'm on at least the 5th bent axle now so I think I just want to beef it up...really not concerned with weight...this is my daily commute and touring bike.

    I'm looking for the most indestructable rear SingleSpeed hub/wheel/axle I can find.

    Any Ideas??

    Thanks in advance.

    check various bmx sites - I hear that 20 mm axles are the rage...or am I just thinking about the new movement for 20 mm fronts?

    you keep bending the axle because your bike is stupid, try not being an attention whore and just ride a normal bike like the rest of the human race or keep looking like some ghetto ass 80's tennis instructor on his way to impressing the cirque du solea talent scouts.

    Any chance there is so much flex in the frame that excessive chain tension is snapping the axles?

    I hope you are a midget, or a clown.

    any chance that being an attention whore is the base problem?

    Haha you guys are funny.

    But seriously, all I want to know if there is a real beefy axle...maybe a tandem wheelset that someone can vouch for with at least a 14mm solid axle.

    Just having fun with life blackohio...please lighten up...try getting high :))

    Yes I want everyone to look at me! It's called being safe, the more easily you are seen the better chances of not being hit! Plus this is my art...I made the bike myself. Try one out for yourself and you'll never want to ride a normal bike again.

    what you're looking for basically doesn't exist. closest thing would be a 14mm bmx hub.

    the problem with that is that you'd have to weld on an entire new rear triangle. the axle is larger than what you currently have, and the spacing is different; bmx hubs are 110mm; older road bikes like the one you are running are 126mm spacing. if its newer, than you're even worse off with 130mm spacing.
