Puts stress and load on different parts of the axel and hub. Usually a larger diameter axel inside. Deff alot stronger, lighter, and cleaner looking.

Male:


female:


As you can see, a female axle is where you screw a bolt in and male has an axle where you jus tighten a nut on.

it bolts also bend less I think, maybe because they're shorter theres less leverage...

you can also buy the bolts at a hardware store, so its cheaper to fix a bent axle(bolt) and alot less hassle.

yeah it looks clean ^^
my axle right now sticks out like a mile from the dropout lolz
post #13 of 39
yup female axles for the win

not that cleanness matters when you run four pegs, but hey, I race the bike, so it keeps me from having to cut my axles down/buy plastic caps

Some guy told me that a rear 3/8 female hub is stronger than a 14mm male hub. True?
