Wasn’t going to say anything… but I guess why not -
When you first posted the pics of the axles, immediately noticed while they look very high quality, 8mm portion is just standard hub/wheel length.
I feel like we’re at a point in ESK8 where there is a good amount of demand for extended axles to accommodate wider hubs/hubs w/an aftermarket spacer for stretched tires that so many people like to run now.
Any thoughts about making some batches w/a extended 8mm portion? It’s always easy enough to slap normal wheels on an extended axle and put a spacer in-between the wheel & axle nut if you want the shorter width for turning/carving benefits, and there really isn’t much axle sticking out if so - but you can never put wider hubs on a standard axle.
& This is a question I should probably know but don’t - if you wanted to run a wider hub on stepped axles like these, are there any issues regarding how forces get distributed and such if you run a 10mm bearing & 8mm bearing in the hub? Definitely somewhat dumb, but I feel like if you have the spacers it would work.
