Zipp 182 Track Axle

The subject of the scarcity of track axles for older Zipp 900 discs has come up a few times and I mentioned recently that I was making one for a friend since I have a machine shop and an original axle to copy.

My version uses a stainless washer instead of the flimsy carbon cover and the washer is held in place with a snap ring that holds it up against a small wavy washer on a shoulder. This means it doesn't rotate or other wise move around and has a close fit to the freehub side of the disc.

If anyone needs one or knows someone who does I can certainly make more. Contact me for more details (hope that's not against forum rules).

Damn, thatís nice.

Also, I think itís fine to discuss what youíve made as long as you donít overtly offer them for sale in these threads. Only paying advertisers are allowed to do that (which is also an option for you).

Edit: Iím no longer a moderator. But thatís how I understood the rules and enforced them when I was.

You can also offer them for trade in the trade thread. What you and the other person decide to trade is up to you two.

super cool, excellent job.

I don't own an old zipp disc, but if you ever need help filling an order let me know and I'll take one just to support work like this.

I'm not familiar with the Zip axle but do the threads sit against the fork dropout - if so could the threads stop short of the dropout (especially for carbon fiber forks)?

This is a rear wheel so never in contact with carbon. On the NDS you could do the threads short but on the other side the threads are needed for the lock nut to preload the bearings.

Nice job. Put the word out about this and I'm sure you'll find people who've been looking for a while!

Your bearing cover solution seems a lot more secure than the annoying o-ring in a groove that Zipps use.

Really nice work!!!

I did a rear to front conversion a while ago, using a titanium tube (and tube stubs). For quick release. Tube/shaft collars to center.

I can get better photos of anybody wants.
