Smaller than 3/8?

Does anyone know what size axle is smaller than 3/8? I got a frame and fork that take a smaller axle. Any info would help

Thanks,
Stuart

Re: Smaller than 3/8?

I've had a few 70's rims that had an axle smaller than 3/8. Just use slotted 3/8...

Re: Smaller than 3/8?

2sides of the axle are flat, so it can fit smaller dropouts. This can be done pretty easily with a file, just line them up good, one on each side, don't go to deep with it...
