Axle questions?dzrider

The rear wheel felt loose on my new used fixie and I found the hub axle was broken in half. The bearings, cones and cups look real good so I'd like to get a solid axle and some track nuts and get back on the road. Are axles interchangeable? What details do I need to know to be sure a replacement will fit?

The thread pitch has to match. You'll probably need 26tpi. Length is a big deal with QR axles but not an issue at all with a bolt-on.
