Re: BSA Wheels and axles

Since you raised the possibility, why aren't the Max-V wheels made with tighter bores, then?
I set the bore size to the smallest it could be and still fit the Pro-Hub Tool.

Re: BSA Wheels and axles

The reason for the size of our speed axles is to fit in BSA-size slots and holes. If the diameter was larger then they would be too tight. Awana axles are larger, but so are the slots on the Awana block. A better solution would be for BSA to reduce the diameter of the wheel bore to better fit it axle.
