Spare axle?

The one that came with the bike works just fine.

I've also done them right on the bike before putting the brakes or the chain back on.

The tires on the ST have been tested to over 100 mph.
That's the way I do it, except for the last set I didn't bother and they seem fine.

The axles I have are busy holding the other set of wheels on the bike.

Probably less than 600 miles so far, but I am enjoying it. Did a little service pn her today. I'm getting itchy to ride some dirt, but I'm out for LF (2nd of 3 spring weddings the wife is making me attend).
