I have just bought a Klein rascal frame with a bottom bracket already fitted, thing is its to short for the Deore chain set I wanted to fit to it. Currently it's a 108 and I need a 122mm axel. Can someone help me with this as I've asked all the bike shops and they keep saying the cant help its too old:(
I just require the longer axel surely it can't be that hard. Anybody got one or can advise me on this.
Cheers
:roll: :?

Don't think you can get a 122mm but you can get a 121mm or 125mm.

121mm are available at First Flight bikes in the USA.

I have a 125mm in the man cave I think. I will have a look this w/e.

Someone on here could probably help with fitting.

We could do a straight swap if you like. 125 is XT and 108 XTR I believe.

Cheers

It's a type 3S. Or if you prefer a cartridge, you can have this:

I'm due a frame with the axel you most probably need. Also happy to do a swap if the above members can't help.
