What does it means 135mm in a 135x10 mm axle?

I'm trying to understand axle measures in order to mount an axle in my new tacx neo2t turbo trainer. I can`t find 135 mm anywhere in the sketch (see image). Even more, I have a tacx 135x10 axle and I 've trying to figure out something in it that measures 135mm but I don't find.

Thank you.

    Yes.

    135mm is the OLN dimension (typically for a MTB, but could be applicable to thru axle road bikes). What bike do you have?

    Thanks Ben

    Sorry, Im like a illiterate in mechanics... OLN??

    My bike is a 2012 MTB and the situation is that the bike's axle I think is exactly like the figure A in here:

    https://support.garmin.com/en-NZ/?faq=2GhbXH9Bub8BgLJ8YgW7n5

    But in that site you can also read:
    • 130 mm non-drive side quick release adapter (preinstalled on trainer)
    • Quick release drive side adapter for 130 mm (preinstalled on trainer)
    Just in case I had already bought a 135x10 mm tacx adapter.

    So, should I use the trainer preinstalation 130mm with the included axle or should I use 135x10mm adapter?

    Over Locking Nut. Basically the dimension between the dropouts.

    You won't be using the 130mm solution because that is for road bikes with QR skewers. You need to install part C (Quick release adapter for 135 mm bikes).

    I'm guessing your bike has QR hubs given it's 2012.

    Thank you so much, at least I understand!! I've measured between my bike's dropouts and indeed is 135 mm.

    Nice one. And if that's right, you'll know.
