    Default Rear Axle Spacers

    Alright y’all, I am stumped on this one.
    I’m sure, without a doubt it’s a common Youngbloods mistake.
    A rookie move if you will.

    But, I converted over to a rigid frame and was struck with the realization that my axle is all sorts of too long and apparently I need some some fancy spacers so that my axle not be floating around through my axle plates.
    So...I found this....

    To my tiny brain....it’s missing a second flat spot spacer.
    Am I missing how this works...or do I need to request a second one?

    "Milled" area of the axle head engages the slots in the frame brackets, like all stock rigid axles. The only catch is, are your frame slots the right width for this axle kit?

    Pan replica hardtail with the cast plates takes that 10.5 axle you'll still need some spacer work to get everything lined up right and it depends on what style of rear brake your using buy the appropriate size tubing and get cutting

    looks like the hex has a milled flat. should be 7/8 if you are using a replica frame. the other route is to use your original axel and get some spacers. I have made a few sets of these.

    Once the axle is thru and the frame attachment part is locked in it acts as the other stabilizing spacer so that the axle isn’t bouncing around on the other side?

    That’s what my thoughts were, but finding them has been a nightmare. Not too mention a couple dead ends when asking guys who’ve made them if they commission some for me.

    My frame doesn’t have that bracket/platform for this caliper, so I’m figuring out how to add that also.

    These axle holders will allow you to run your 3/4" axle in a set of early forged HD axleplates, or in a Paughco frame without using a special axle. Any frame with a 7/8" axle slot will accept these locators, and give you the option of using a standard 3/4" axle.
