I’ve only ever used them on steel freehub bodies but yes, the contact patch is several times wider than a cassette sprocket.
@rcbprk Yes exactly, a single sprocket from a Miche 8s cassette spaced out to the correct chainline.
@ectoplasmosis Ok that's encouraging... sounds like it normally works out.
Unfortunately the hub I had was a Campagnolo 8s Athena hub and nobody makes SS sprockets to fit, hence why I'm swapping hubs.
Wheel logo alignment
Oooohhh that is so rad @rcbprk !
I love the aesthetic choices thus far. Keep going my dude!
Couple of LBS shots. Ritchey seat post incoming, along with cog and pedals. This is easily the least matchy-matchy bike I've ever owned. In fact there aren't two components from the same brand except a pair of hubs, tyres and brakes.
72 spokes! ;)
And 20? Spacers? It might be worth getting a single long one once you’re comfortable on it.
It looks so fun
72 of Mr Swiss' finest! I don't see much buckling in my future.
Yeah that was all the spacers the shop had in stock just to get the bars mounted. Going in next week for a fitting session, then we'll get some big ones on there to neaten things up a bit. Can't wait to give it a spin - luckily the LBS isn't that local so my first ride will be ~7 miles.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
