i did that once some time ago. you need to make a custom tube spacer too probably. All in all saved 40 grams over Mid ircc and was a cool exercise on tolerances.
you could even buy them from khe back in the days

Apart from being terrible for your BB bearings (which are radial, not thrust or ACB, i.e. engineered for axial loads), not running a tube spacer will lead to your sprocket bolt coming undone, and your spindle bolts too if you don't have pinchbolt cranks. One of the subtle things that 99/100 people don't realise, like how most hub wobble in hubs with a 14mm or 3/8" axle is caused by non-parallel dropouts or exploded driver bearings being caused by the bearing shoulder on the axle not being a right angle but instead a curve

I ended up ordering a new odyssey wheel. I might try to fix the helicoil someday.
I bent the axles on both sides of my odyssey wheel first day though.
I'm wondering if my hub guards and pegs took enough meat from the length of the bolt to allow for bending and stripping in the hub shell. (plastic peg, metal guard)

I replaced them with some longer hardware store bolts and while less refined they seem to be holding up.

Thank you for the help.
I also checked on Albe's website - their spoke calculator had all the hubs I was looking for and the spoke length was right on.

You want all frames to flex a little bit otherwise they’d all crack. But how much is too much? Hard to say honestly
