    If its A standard axle then its 135mm

    I’m fixing up a Kona Stinky for a local lad, and it needs a new rear wheel, as the old one is completly dead after being ridden on 1 bearing!

    I need to identify what the model year of the Stinky is so I can try and track down the correct rear end spacing for that year.

    A quick google suggested it has a 135mm rear, so I managed to track down a free wheel, but it doesn’t appear to fit. It sits in the dropouts but there is a fair amount of flex required in the chainstays (~10-15mm) if I were to tighten it up and if I snug it up on the brake side, it doesn’t align with the brake caliper (disc would be too far outboard). Internal measurement (internal face to internal face) between the dropouts is 135mm, but having never actually had cause to measure rear end spacing before I’m not sure if this is the correct way to measure?
