I've changed a lot of wheels from 126>130 and from 130>135, and there is still plenty of axle. 126>135 would test Sheldon's theory. While I'm sure what he says is true, it leaves out any fail-safe for a broken QR, and a bent/broken axle would probably move around also. But thank goodness we have him pushing the envelope for us!
