    Well done. Your problem is sorted but we have not really got to the bottom of things.
    I have swopped wheels and frames countless times without a problem. There seems to be two axle and drop out sizes but nobody seems to know about them.

    And very few people have run into the problem!

  • @piker2 @Ben6899 Thanks! Yeah I've been riding/wrenching bikes for 30 years and have never come across this before. I had always assumed 9mm was the standard for axle diameter, and dropouts typically have a little leeway so you can get the wheel in/out without too much fuss.

    Hopefully my frame is just a one-off or a manufacturing defect of some sort. I've not come across others experiencing this issue after searching around for a while. Glad I found this forum!
