I recently got a New Avalanche from a friend who bought it brand new from YYE. I asked if he had changed out anything and he assured me that it was stock as it came from YYE. Giving his experience and reputation here on the forum, i whole-heartedly believe him.
Simple enough but here’s the confusion.
I take it apart to find a short axle. (wha?)
Pull up YYE to check list of what CLYW uses what axle. Found that it lists the axle as a Long.
I take brand new CLYW Long axle to replace it, and it would not thread. at all. not even almost. I try another, same thing. not even a quarter twist before it locks up it a cross thread feeling. I do not force it cause im not an idiot.
I take my short axle out of my Puffin2 and find the same thing! it will not screw in.
Apon close examination I find that the axle’s threading is different all together (make sense) but i have no idea what size or threading (like is it 3mm? 2/56? i dunno!).
So my questions are as follows…
1a- Does the Avalanche use a special sized or different threading than other CLYW?
1b- If so what is it?
2-If not, than what happened? Im so confused but really curious.
