That's true.whats the tension on the non drive side though? Half of the drive side? So say 50/60kgf.
The front bearing bore distorts way before your reach the adequate tension of 95-100kgf for the front wheel.
Anyway good luck with it. Can you let us know if it developed a play? It would good to know
It's for a build that I'm planning to sell, so for that reason I will probably go for the tried and tested pattern rather than experiment... Will see.
