surely they require a shorter axle, as apposed to a longer skewer?
as the disc mount fits to the inside of the drop out, thus meaning a regular axle will be too long.

i've been proved wrong before, so won't come as a supprise if proved wrong again. :lol:

no, hope one needs short axle, other one fits on outside of drop out so needs longer skewer

as for the actual sharkfin, mine arived back not long ago.
as promised here's a top down pic of it, as you can see it's far from just a straight bit of metal.

That's right although it doesn't have to be much shorter than a standard hub.
I just spent loads on wheels so i'm going a different route, prob weld some disk mounts to rear frame, problem is ac welding can be a bitch to get right!
