HD AXLE 26" rim wheel for single speed 110 to135mm frame drop out
Single Speed HD AXLE 26" WHEEL with 12ga. spokes;
HD Axle wheels can be used with all 2 stroke bike engines and also with 4 stroke engines that have a freewheel system in their transmissions. DO NOT USE THIS WHEEL ON ANY MOTORIZED BIKE THAT DOES NOT HAVE A FREEWHEEL IN THE ENGINE'S TRANSMISSION SYSTEM.
Chain Sprockets are not included due to so many different sizes: Order them separately.
SPECS: 26" HD AXLE wheel with 12 ga. spokes with eyelets and double wall rim centered for a 135mm wide single speed frame drop out but can be adjusted for 110 to 150mm drop outs with proper technique.
HD axle wheels can accommodate both Disc Brake attachment and can also use a Caliper Vee-Brake application on the CNC cut rim. 2 ways! Can even use both at the same time for super-stopping power.
HD axle wheels made for 2 stroke engines come with a steel 6 Hole CCW 36-1 screw on chain sprocket hub and spacer. NOTE: CCW treads are required so the drive sprocket hub does not unscrew under engine power.
Commencing on July 15th 2021 we are now including M5 set screws on the 6 Hole CCW threaded sprocket hub to ensure the hub does not unscrew when the clutch lever is released for 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.
Read closely and review all the pictures.
Why do you want to buy 2 cast aluminum wheels when one HD Axle wheel matches most Vee Frame bike's front spoked wheel and can do so much more!
Keeps the original look of vintage bikes.
HD AXLE 26" WHEEL with 12ga. spokes;
SUITABLE for both DISC BRAKES and VEE CALIPER BRAKES.
Fits SINGLE SPEED standard 110 to 135mm drop out frames.
HD AXLE has (2) double row 5200 ball bearings. see pic.
Our HD axle wheels come standard with a 6 hole solid steel 36-1 CCW screw on hub and spacer that use our exclusive 6 hole chain sprockets.
( 6 hole Chain Sprockets are not included due to so many tooth choices. ) Order the 6 hole sprocket you want and we will include in with the wheel at no extra shipping cost.
- 2 wheel rim positions to choose from. This add is for one single speed 135mm drop out wheel. The adjoining multi-speed wheel add has same features as single speed except the rim is spaced out to center in a 150mm multi-speed drop out. Both are adjustable with proper spoke adjustment technique.
- NOTE: HD Axle Wheels avoid the troublesome and undesirable method of clamping a 9 hole chain sprocket to wheel spokes. Clamping to spokes was never a good idea!
If you are good at spoke lacing you can adjust the rim position to about any size drop out. > ie: 110mm to 155mm. The 220mm extra long axle shaft allows custom fitting by cutting off excess length with hacksaw or angle grinder.
