Axle Replacement
#1
Are there any big concerns about doing a wheel axle replacement that one might be aware of?

Why is it that they make adult bikes that'll generally work for 5'9" or above, yet when you pedal these same bikes they only work for someone who is 5'4" or so?

Make sure the length and threads match up with your old one. While assembling, you may have to adjust the cones on both sides several times to get the axle centered so that you have an equal amount of thread sticking out both sides.
