I am creating a ski-bike and taking this website as a reference: Alpine Ski-Bike.
I am having some trouble understanding some things, as it says that
"it fits in 100mm x 9mm front dropout"
but then it states that
"Mounting triangles and foot pegs are extruded 6061 T-6 aluminum. They use standard 3/8" 26 thread-per-inch bicycle axles (140mm and 175mm lengths)"
I have two questions:
The mounting triangle uses a 3/8"(9.478mm) bicycle axle but the front dropout is only 9mm so how is it supported?
I am asuming that (140mm and 175mm lengths) = 140mm length of mounting triangles and 175mm length is of foot pegs, so is 140mm is the length of bicycle axle?
