The total length of the axles is not long enough to make standard spacing100 mm Front and 120 mm rear work. I have a set of same hubs but correct 100mm front and120mm rear and you can see the difference in the length of axles. My axles are 1/4'' shorter. My guess is made for special run of frames. Box doesn't give axle length. My only fix is new axles. Thanks but sure confused Charles Nighbor Architect

This is the question Charles asked, it had nothing to do with in-expieranced mechanics. The axles themselves were too short. Nearly every mid priced Jap bike I worked on had 96mm, but, I never noticed the rear length.
