#2 HD AXLE 26" rim wheel for Multi-Speed 150mm frame drop.
#2 HD AXLE 26" WHEEL made for 150mm dropout multi-speed bikes and 2-stroke pedal start engines.
All steel axle and solid steel hub means they are much stronger than those made of aluminum.
This 26" HD AXLE wheel is made with 12 ga. spokes for 150mm tp 155mm wide multi-speed bike frame dropouts.
Multi-Speed wheel is Not suitable for a single speed bike frame. See our single speed wheel add.
This wheel can be used with all 2 stroke mid-frame bike engines such as our SkyHawk Gt5A-Es as well as with 4 stroke engines as long as the engine's transmission has a freewheel included such as is found in our 4G and 5G belt drive transmissions.
(Order extra cost 6-hole Chain sprocket separately. )
We have 6 hole, 36T to 56T sprockets available.
NOTE: This wheel is the same as the single speed wheel except the rim is spaced more inward to be in the center of a 150mm to 155mm drop out.
HD Axle Wheels can accommodate both Disc Brake Rotor attachment to a screw on steel hub and can also use a Caliper Vee-Brake application on the CNC cut rim. 2 ways!
#2 HD axle wheels come standard with a steel 6 Hole CCW 36-1 screw on chain sprocket hub and spacer.
#1 HD axle wheels with a Freewheel sprocket hub are found in the 4 cycle engine section. DO NOT ORDER A #1 HD AXLE WHEEL FOR A 2 STROKE ENGINE APPLICATION BECAUSE A FREEWHEEL HUB will not allow pedal engine starting
NOTE: CCW threads are required so the sprocket hub does not unscrew when under engine power.
Commencing on July 15th, 2021, we now include set screws on the 6 Hole CCW sprocket hub to ensure the hub does not unscrew when the clutch lever is released when starting a 2-stroke engine. Some folks did not understand the necessity to use Loctite 271 thread lock and use the jam lock ring to securely lock the hub in place on the axle. Therefore, so we are now adding the set screws for double securement.
Use a 2.5mm Allen wrench to tighten the (3) M5 set screws down after sprocket hub is tightly secured against the back side ring spacer.
Read closely and review all the pictures.
Why buy 2 cast aluminum wheels when one HD Axle wheel matches most front spoke wheels and can do so much more! Thus, keeping the original look of vintage bikes.

NOTE: This is the exact same HD AXLE wheel as the one for 130mm drop out single speed application except the rim is centered for 150 to 155 drop out frames. Both wheels can be spoke adjusted to fit in each other's place.
