Bunky, for the side you femaled, did you cut the axel all the way, so that the end of the axel is flush with the lock nut or did you leave a little bit of the 14mm axel to sit in the dropouts?

I left 5mm sticking out the end past the cone nut, so it would sit in the dropout.  I thought about cutting it flush and using a Blue6 chromo bolt with the shoulder, but decided to use the volcano bolt since it's 6mm.

Do think it would be possible to cut both ends flush with the locknuts, tap both ends for the bolts, and then use the hub in a 3/8ths dropout frame?  I just got a new flatland frame and the dropouts are 3/8th.

I don't see why not.  As long as you mark the axle well for where the cone nuts stop and then cut it nice and straight, that shouldn't be a problem.

Cool, I think I might give it a try.  What size tap would you use for g sport bolts?

I used this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003A2UPYG/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

and this: http://www.lowes.com/pd_93021-70-DW1121++G_0__?productId=3422802&Ntt=21%2F64&pl=1&currentURL=%3FNtt%3D21%252F64&facetInfo= to drill the hole out wider before tapping the axle. 

Make sure you go slow and don't overheat the axle, bit, or taps when you do it, or they could break in the axle.

Albie woah dude that looks really nice! Flatland I take it? The headtube, 14mm drops, and bullet-tapered stays look tasty...
