Re: new wheel set, rear fits, front doesn't

I managed to find a mavic retailer prepared to deal with mavic and order in the hub casing part. It arrived in the post today and I swapped out the 15mm hub shell for the 12mm hub shell. Simple enough but had to scramble a little tool together to get the shell out. Made with an old spoke. https://ju...

Re: new wheel set, rear fits, front doesn't

Just to update on this in case its helpful to anybody. the Mavic Crossmax wheels set are sold as being suitable for 12mm thru axles but are in fact different on the front and on the rear. The rear axle is 12mm but the front is 15mm. This is what is causing the issue of fitting the front wheel to the...

Re: new wheel set, rear fits, front doesn't

it might help if you say - what type of axle this is - what type of frame this is - what type of hub this is my suspicion is that the problem stems from too many 'standards' which are not really 'standards'..... :roll: and that you have a few options here including; - different hubs - different/mod...

new wheel set, rear fits, front doesn't

I might have to start a thread just for this assembly as it keep hitting sticking points. As the subject states the front wheel wont go with the forks so I was hoping that somebody would be aware of a potential remedy. The bays on the inside of the forks, the bit where the hub/axle nestle into are 1...

Re: First time fitting Forks

Fantastic help gregoryoftours. I had convinced myself that at very least the inner 45 degree bevel of the bearing should abut to the bevel on the crown race to offer some kind of mechanical stability... and that I was now in some-kind of dilemma where I would have to find either a bearing with diffe...

Re: TV licensing...

I've not had a license for a few years and have advised that I no longer require one. I had a few emails at first which died down eventually, but recently have a had a letter saying the legal occupier is under investigation. I interpreted this as BBC are sensing the financial loss of so many people ...

Re: First time fitting Forks

Could you add a photo of the current state of the assembly? Jonathan This is the current state of the assembly, it's only showing the bottom as I am happy with the top part of the assembly now. The bearing doesn't abut to the crown race and I suspect it should. Image shows the bottom with the crown...

Re: First time fitting Forks

As it happens, I assembled exactly this headset a while back (supplied with a Genesis frame). I have to say that I found Gregory's post a model of clarity....I could no more take somebody else's photos and apply numbers to them than fly about in the air. Not only that, but he is spot on with the as...

Re: First time fitting Folks

The headset needs to be assembled as follows: IMG_20200819_215120.jpg IMG_20200819_215339.jpg Part 1- this is the crown race. Flip this 180° and it needs to sit around the stepped shoulder it is currently sat on top of, with the bevel facing upwards. If it's a split collar it will just push down ar...

First time fitting Forks

This is my first attempt at assembling a bike from all of its component parts and have come to a point of uncertainty. Installing the forks I'm not certain I've got these things in the right order. Would appreciate if anybody with the know how could advise. Bottom https://1drv.ms/u/s!AmE3C-rF9fUUheF...
