If you found someone to make the conversion kit, how many prices would you be holding in your hand? My problem with a two piece design is that it will be heavy, there are twice as many points of potential failure, and very expensive to machine.tonyxcom said:The axle would be a single piece the FULL width of the hubs and legs so I don't know why you are concerned about a 2 piece design.
The other price is a reducer so it's as much a part of the axle as a wheel bearing is..... It's not part of the axle.
Not sure I understand what you're saying. Forget the 25mm. I want to run a different fork that is 20mm and wanted to know if I can convert my 25mm hub to accomodate the new fork.PB Matrix said:20mm spacers will not work, they are only 20mm Inside diameter, you need 25mm inside diameter.
As for the two piece front axel design, do you really want to go there??
I would say if Kelstr with his handy dandy pocket lathe (that every man should own) would be the one to skunk work a 25mm to 20mm axel contraption.
Do I get it? Yes I do.PB Matrix said:Yes, you can convert it with 37mm OD x 20 ID bearings. But, the 20mm spacers have to be the correct width once the new bearings are in the old 25mm hub.
So, buy 2 6904-2RS bearings, put them in tight, then put the spacers on both sides of the hub, then put a 20mm axel thru the hub and spacers, make it tight, mark the axel with a pencil where the spacer stops, measure this distance, if it is less than 110mm add 37mm OD 25mm ID inside the bearings to get it to 110mm. If the distance is more than 110mm, reduce the width of the spacers. Get it?
I will say the Roval wheels are set up very nice , they enable a QR , 20 and 25mm axle to be used and they come with all the spacers .shift96 said:Do I get it? Yes I do.
