Yes when making a front wheel for my Scott I had many sleepless nights thinking of that 3/8″ spindle
used the best steel I could find
As I was using 2 bantam hubs back to back their bearings were just large enough to take a close fitting 3/8 Id tube and I chamfered the ends to match the inside slight chamfers I found on the kite fork ends and the 3/8″ spindle nuts pulled the whole lot up and snug
But 3/8″? mycalculations did not stop me worrying
