    Cheers for the heads up - that's lovely, but I think the rings would be too bling for the project it's going on - all pretty low key & reckon the oe rings with the polished highlights would tie in better with the black paint / polished stainless bands on the frame

    Cheers anyway!

    Cheers guys - looks like both press in from the non disc side after all, the disc side has a bit of a lip but other than that and a couple of circlips it's a straight bore right through the axle - just seemed like a bizarre thing to do, but thinking about it with the axle size and the Centrelock spline size being the limiting factors there's no much room for a decent sized bearing to go in from the disc side really...

    Cheers!

    Searched the Mavic site with the serial number from the wheel & it should defo be 6804 in the hub - here's pics of the actual bearing that was removed from the non disc side sitting in both sides of the hub... wtf? The disc side bearing was mullered to death upon removal before I realized this issue so I don't have the shrapnel from the other bearing to compare...

    Unless I'm supposed to heeft the disc side bearing across from the other side of the hub shell, is this a thing?

    Hi - anyone know the bearing sizes for a front Aksium Disc in Centrelock flavour?

    I thought it was 6804 on both sides but the disc side of the hub shell seems smaller than the bearing - am I missing something?

    Cheers,

    Looking for a DA 9000 chainset in 170mm length, either 50/34 or 52/36 rings, must be vgc - anyone have some to shift?

    Cheers!

    Also while I'm here - anyone know the max tyre clearance on the 2013-ish 29er High Latitudes?

    Going to check one out locally as a cheap MTB runabout & already wondering how I can tart it up a bit

    I love that colour - dunno about headset facing, Ive never bothered because I'm lazy & impatient, but in theory a new frame probably should have the faces cleaned up before you build it up, enjoy!

    Yeah you're right - had another look & noticed that - ended up ordering the Geoff as they were still cheap (and the obligatory half dozen inner tubes & some wild socks) wider = betterer right? Plus there'll be bells / lights etc. etc hanging off it so more space for bar furniture might be handy and the backswept bits aren't too useful for lights

    Now I need a bar bag to fill with enough snacks to appease an angry 2 year old who thinks a nice cycle through the countryside is a load of horse-shit (She can get into the rucksack & demolish all the good stuff before I even notice ...)
