You may get away with it strength-wise if you're careful (it's an aluminium axle), but AFAIK those hubs are narrower than standard and only fit the Eclipse freestyle frames. You'd have to bend a standard-width frame to get it to fit, and the narrow hub would lead to a weaker wheel.

The aluminum spindle is not strong enough for muni, street or trials. They are only for freestyle, commuting, touring, etc...

You will bend it and when you do it will not be covered by warranty and you'll be out al bunch of time from rebuilding wheels.

The new Nimbus chromoly hub is pretty sweet, built one up last night, my daughter said it was shaped like a woman

For future "question" threads, consider putting the actual question in the thread title?
