press fits last fine...aluminum drive works fine too. stfu
I gotta disagree, I have the steel free hub and sometimes my cassette gets stuck on because the steel has worn, I can't imagine what it what be like if it was aluminum.
And I've seen too many standard axels break, heavy duty axel w/ fun bolts is the only way to go.
Not to put down your hub sebLG, I know you're high right now just looking at that, and it's worth every penny you spent. But when it's time to send it in, spend a little extra dough and have it upgraded.

Regular axles are fine (in fact I would never buy an HD axle after my first one).

So are alum drive shells.


Gold is fine too.

I'm guessing you mean airbomb.com, which is a high discount canadian bike parts warehouse. I've heard good and bad from them. I've heard of people receiving great service and parts on time, and I've heard the exact opposite. I would say I've probably heard more bad than good, but if its discount you're going for, some times you just take the bad with the good. I hope you see it soon though :).

I went ahead and stuck 1" holes in my DX32, but it is definitely the largest you could go without hitting into the structure of the rim near the sidewalls. I had about a hairs width of space to deal with to not hit that but I used a drill press so it was pretty easy really. If you have a hand drill, try 7/8" holes.

I must be unlucky then, seems like nobody else breaks those axels.
Theo broke his and mine broke like two months later, so i thought it was a given.....oh well.
Andy, what was wrong with your HD axel?
