How-To: Formula Rear Axle Replacement

October 10, 2010 Sungwoo 3 Comments

I've received a lot of questions regarding axle replacement, so here it is.

Basically, There's a bunch of 14mm hubs/frames in the works, but *for now*, these cheap solid axle hubs seem to be one of the best/affordable ones out there, in my opinion.
I know it's long, but I wanted to make it informative so it makes sense for everyone. I hope this helps.

I wanted to film a quick edit to attach to the end of this, but it's intensely busy right now and I just have no time, so it's just a boring how-to video. Sorry about that.

  1. nice tutorial!
    any suggested online shop to buy those axles?

  2. Thanks, I'm not sure but a quick Google search will probably give you good results, they're just replacement axles, nothing special.

    I just go into my lbs and ask for 130mm spacing Formula rear axle. :)

  3. I checked on Google a few weeks ago but
    unfortunately I couldn't find anything relevant. I just found a random forum discussion with a link to an e-shop which it wad dead.
    I'll ask my lbs and see what's gonna happen.

    Thanks Swoo!
