Cutting Down Axles


Yesterday I decided to cut my axles down because I was sick of all the extra length that is included on the KHE freecoasters. Once I got started, I also drilled out the axle, because it was only hollowed out about 1/4″ so I cut out quite a bit more than that. Also, I cut it down enough that I don’t need washers on the axle as I dont run pegs. If I ever do get around to attaching metal tubes to my bike to help me better vandalize other peoples property, I can cut it down all the way and drill and tap it for female bolts.

    Pretty sweet stuff.

    But vandalizing other people’s property? They have these awesome new things called skateparks. Lots of rails to grind!

    But who am I to talk, I can’t even bunny hop. 😉
