    Rear Axle

    My C Record rear free hub axle is bent. I'm looking for a replacement on eBay. Are the rear axles pretty much universal. If my rear spacing is 126 mm what should I get as far as a length 128, 130?

    Freehub or freewheel hub? If you let me know a ballpark year or post a pic, I can look through some of the parts catalogs I have to see what they look like.

    Sutherland's 4th edition(1985) has these dimensions for a Campagnolo axle

    Thread--10mmx26TPI

    Over locknuts--125mm

    Axle length--134mm

    Dimension A--35mm (this is the measurement from the shoulder that the freewheel buts up against to the outside face of the axle locknut)

    Chainline--43.5 (from center of the hub to middle of the mounted freewheel, which would be the center cog on a 6spd freewheel.)(Do Not put the freewheel on a hub that isn't built into a wheel, Big Mistake. You probably know this, but I thought that it's worth mentioning.)

    I dug out my Campy catalog 18 (Super Record, Record and lower groups pre 1985) and 18 bis (C Recd, Victory, Triomphe groups) . The part number for the C Record and Record rear axle is the same , 29/R. Listed as 132 mm in catalog 18 whereas no axle lengths listed for any hubs in 18 bis.

    Nuovo Tipo hub in cat 18 is listed as part 29 , 127 mm long. Axles for Triomphe and Victory Hubs are part # 420/004.

    Check Wheels MFG to see if they have one for you. There axles are very good.

    Thanks for the research. I'll either get the one in Boulder, but I'm checking one other source as I don't need any of the other hardware.
