Re: Need Some Help with my Hutch Pro Star

Somebody must have jammed a wheel with too big of an axle in there, I know there are some newer wheels that have an axle just slightly bigger than 3/8s...

Re: Need Some Help with my Hutch Pro Star

I would file the axel before you file the frame. Take a look at the threads on the axel and see if they have already been filed down just a bit to create a flat spot right next to the collars.

Re: Need Some Help with my Hutch Pro Star

Instead of using a file on the dropout you should use a dremmel tool, it is a lot faster.

Re: Need Some Help with my Hutch Pro Star

Yeah, please don't file the frame. That is not the answer.

Re: Need Some Help with my Hutch Pro Star

So this is what i did to fix this
in this photo is the axle with black marker

i filed around 5 fins so so lightly
then to clean thread I had to re-thread at 3/8

it worked

Re: Need Some Help with my Hutch Pro Star

Looks like the drop out is slightly closed. I would bet the axle fits through near the front. I imagine when the hub is assembled the drop outs will space open and line up the slightly damaged threads where it will slide right in.  $.02

Re: Need Some Help with my Hutch Pro Star

That looks like a good "fix". That frame looks clean!

Re: Need Some Help with my Hutch Pro Star

My Hutch drop outs were tight too, probably someone cranking down on a chain adjuster or something.
