    hey, I'm looking to buy a mavic cosmic pro (aluminum) for my fixed gear. i found a place that has it and it is in great condition; no dents, dings and minor scratches, comes with tube and tire. however, as i look at the axle, it looks too long and would protrude from the fork ends about 4mm. also, the axle doesn't seem to have a locknut or something for a quick release to press the fork against, unless it's supposed to be that way? Your answers are appreciated.

    Have the seller mount the wheel in a frame ... then you can see if there are any anomalies in the axle/dishing/whatever ...
    Using your frame for testing the fit would be the best, of course!
    What is the rear spacing on your frame? Is it 120mm? 130mm? Something else?

    Well then, basically the same suggestion ...

    Have the seller mount the wheel in a fork ...

    Again, YOUR fork would be best since there can be a small variation in the dropouts.
